Pearls: By Michael Read
Lie as pearls upon the grass.Turning back to glance
Seeing where you’ve been
Your pearls lie there In the endless dew.
A string of beauty lost
Among all the pearls
Dropped in laughter and pain
In the garden of reality
On the dawning of your day
Your day of awakening.
Now the early dawn holds promise
In the shimmering air of your dream
The light strikes out and across
The dewdrops shout with joy
You shout with laughter
A crow calls out just to join your heart
A smile is on your lips
Knowing you’ve never left your home!
