HIDDEN TREASURE- A GIFT
A walk through the many fields of this life
Beauty seen woven into such mystery
Flowers and butterflies
Men and women and children, ourselves,
A hummingbird sips on a backyard feeder one cold and 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 the 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 earthly grasses,
Even time stands still
Then steps aside for a greater reality
A kiss of Heaven’s truth sweet upon the lips
Kiss of love upon the scars of this life,
Beauty that lasts, drapes as a robe upon the shoulders,
Heavenly clothing simply unmatched.
But those relentless voices cry out
To envy the stars, the rich of the world
To desire fame and wealth of the few
Who stand alone in pride, and often fear
Who parade appetites that widen and lengthen
Until the earth itself is drowned,
And all spirit sensitivity is forever lost!
But many others 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 of Christmas,
Revelation peacefully settles within
God’s pure gift of love, of life for us all,
For those willing to unwrap His timeless present.
