The Pearl: A Gift from the Ocean

sea oat ms gulf coast may 9

 

The ocean is beautiful

filled with natural treasures

a grainy material embedded in an oyster

fills the treasure chest ledger

 

A wonderful pearl is formed

within the oyster’s body

perfect in form

never shoddy

 

The pearl is a hard stone

used in necklaces and rings

cultured and polished

a beautiful site to be seen

 

The pearl has meaning

innocence and purity

often used in weddings

vows given with sincerity

 

Such a simple thing

from a sea creature

nourishment for the soul

another one of life’s features

A Grainy Meditation

DocFile (5)

 

Meditating on faith

in a world filled with gloom

so much violence and hatred

are we all doomed

 

The canyon is filledĀ 

with lessons from life

speaking about faith

hope and strife

 

The rocks are grainy

loose with rubble

our lives can be filled with hate

a balloon filled with struggle

 

There is a smooth section

colorful like glass

faith slides without notice

hope slips on past

 

Then there is a small section

where plant life begins to grow

beautiful in it’s innocence

unaware it is not supposed to sow

 

So it is with the world today

with all its hatred and strife

with kindness and love

there is hope and a new life
