there, your treasure

treasure

is buried

leaves, dirt, rocks, sand - mess

And you believe, it's better that way:



part of it's worth is in the planning

the dig, the find

the raising up and glory of it

as it crests the edge of the earth and is lifted above



settled for a life of dirt?

settling in the dirt,

sifting through - down to a laden trunk's temporary bed

Seeking and found by the One that is sought.

I especially love the second stanza - it resonates with me.

Beauty from ashes... seeing the treasure and giving it its full value. I hope you'll visit my blog today - even though on the surface it's completely unrelated, I feel like the heart of why I wrote it was an attempt to do exactly what you describe so beautifully here.

Being one who loves to play in the dirt, I relate to this. Good food for thought. Thanks for sharing.
