Un-Heard of Riches
In my old age am aware of living,
of giving away an ocean of expression.
Have criss-crossed both heart and mind
searching for gold buried in deepest ocean
And like a miner, prospector of long ago,
have withheld a few of those precious nuggets.
Keeping them for self. Believing them to be
most prized and personal of possessions.

Notes: This one was difficult. As soon as I saw the list, I immediately began to hear the song in my head and it refused to be banished no matter how I tried. Almost gave up, but finally found a way around the song, almost. Image is a photo of a backyard bon-fire put through the kaleidoscope app.
