The Seeker



She searched the halls of castled kings,

parted feathered angel wings,

pondered deep with think-tank Brains,

researched Wall Street’s short-term gains,

cozied up to Heads of State,

sought the rarest foods to plate,

joined the ranks of earth’s elite –

and still, her quest was incomplete

until the day she saw it clear,

frost upon a barren spear.

That quality of strength and grace

she’d hunted for through time and space

was clinging to these simple stems

where trials turned life’s tears to gems;

the Truth – elusive, and unknown

had always sparkled close to home.

    Yes indeed ! And is this how your back(?) yard looks now? Already so frosty and frozen.

  5. Excellent poem Melody, the words and the imagery that they create really strikes very close to home. Beautiful.

  6. Fabulous analogy and analysis to what has true weight & value. It brought to mind the following ~God chooses the weak things of the world shall come forth and break down the mighty and strong ones, that man should not counsel his fellow man, neither trust in the arm of fleshโ€” Wonderful writing dear friend ! Faithfully Debbie

  7. Your poetry and picture are lovely, as always, Melody. I love the red barn as a backdrop.

    Christmas Blessings ~ Wendy
