Treasure – DP


To a writer the written word,

parchment and pens.

A photographer the scenery,

trusty camera and lens.

The composer, the instruments,

music and notes.

The dancer, the musicians

and a partner that floats.

And for the painter, his paintbrush,

pallet and muse.

A mother, her children,

maybe one or two.

The gardener the fresh earth,

each individual bloom.

To the bride, the wedding ring,

then of course the groom.

Real treasure is so individual,

chosen to meet our needs.

All the things we cannot take,

when from this life we leave.
