brown maple leaf with person s eye
Photo by Sarah Trummer on


Hidden beneath was a palette of gold

A treasure with a backdrop of sadness

A diamond in the rough that can’t be ignored

This masterpiece lost in the madness


Wise are the hearts of those who can see her

Theirs is a sense born of love

While others pass by flouting their virtues

Salvation is what they’re made of


Little by little as if from a cocoon

She gradually realizes her worth

And to those with closed eyes, they finally see

A spiritual portrait and birth
