Near a lake, a home to alligators and turtles,
at the base of a small bridge
curving over a creek,
leaning up against a tree
and behind foliage where she could not be seen
until one walked over the bridge,
as if she were hiding, waiting for just the right heart;
through wet, drippy, foggy winter mornings
Curious hands touching and turning her did not matter.
The sun glinting off her multi-colored, jeweled surroundings only
made her more attractive.
Then, one morning...or perhaps late afternoon
the sun sparkling on her green, jeweled cape
might have drawn someone in need,
and the right heart found her.
Loving hands.... what else could they be?....
lifted her, carrying her away to her new home,
where she would surely bring comfort to one who needs her spritual love,
where her inner beauty could shine.
May you bring peace and love to
your new home, wherever you are.
