Hidden Treasure – A Gift

A walk through the many fields of this life

Beauty easily seen, woven into such mystery

Flowers and butterflies

Men and women and children, ourselves,

A hummingbird sips from a backyard feeder on a cold, frosty morning.

The heart tugs at purpose and deepest meaning  

Yet, the body, the mind of the world pulls away

Letting go of these precious moments when we marvel

Stand in awe as children, child-like once more

Hands of trust take hold of what draws us near,

Riches this world cannot offer

True wealth hidden in plain view,

Gift that patiently waits

Quietly as early morning dew

Jewels and silver and gold upon the common earthly grasses,

Even time stands still

Then steps aside for a greater reality

A kiss of Heaven’s truth sweet upon the lips

Beauty that lasts, drapes as robes about the shoulders

Heavenly clothing simply unmatched.

But those voices call out

To envy the stars, the rich of the world

Desire the fame and wealth of the few

Who stand alone in pride

Parade of appetites that only widen and lengthen

Until the earth itself is drowned

And all spirit sensitivity is forever lost!

But many have chosen the humble path

Who drink from a most beautiful cup

Wisdom the sharpest sword flashes from above,

Those who truly seek, who search for more than just gold

Righteous embrace of the greatest gift

Revelation peacefully settled within,

God’s pure gift of love, of life for us all,

For those willing to unwrap His timeless present.
