Today’s featured poet is Ann Magill. Her poem “The Treasure Hunters” speaks of the richness we all have in the elemental. You can find Ann on her blog Plato’s Nightmare/Aesop’s Dream.
THE TREASURE HUNTERS
We have searched long, and hard, for this.
At times, we were so close, we could almost smell it,
Before the trail led us away again.
Now, we have found it — this treasure,
Half-hidden in this cool, shadowy, place.
See how it glints, silver and gold, in the broken light?
Hear the bright music it makes as it falls?
Take it up by the handful!
Whatever the future holds,
In this moment, we want for nothing.
We have searched long and hard for this treasure.
And now, we have found it.
Bring it to your lips.
Have you ever tasted anything so sweet?
Bright, clear, running water.
We have it.
And we are rich.
