treasures

Up on his shoulders
as he trudged around
Turning over boulders
Scanning the ground
My dad and I looking for arrowheads
In the farmers’ fields.

Crack open the rocks
tryin to find a geode
Split wide open
so everything’s showin
Every stone my own treasure
Each flint a hero’s tale.

sometimes the most precious things
are here right around us
gotta dig a little deeper
need to take a peek inside

treasures in earthly vessels
worth more than we can tell
each one surely a keeper,
and everything will be alright.

just like those smooth stones
in a winding circle
a solitary path goes
into the heart’s world
You and I walking together
on this spinning wheel

sometimes the most precious things
are here right around us
gotta dig a little deeper
need to take a peek inside

treasures in earthly vessels
worth more than we can tell
each one surely a keeper,
and everything will be alright.
