Pearls and Silk

My RB friend Karen Bradshaw asked me to come up with a poem for her photograph called “Pearls and Silk” its such a lovely photograph that I had no problem being inspired to write this small poem!
Hope you like it
And please do go and see Karen’s lovely flower “Pearls and Silk”

I could not believe her happiness when I handed her my present!
All wrapped in a nice light blue box with a clean white ribbon.
I worried over this all week long was this the thing for her.
I looked at so many thing’s in the store it gave my mind a scare!
In every counter was a stone much larger than the other.
They looked so hard and without life I decided not to buy them.
And then I thought about the struggle to get them out the earth.
And all the little fingers digging in the dirt.
I looked at them and all I saw was others getting rich.
It made me stop and think too long about such ugly things!
So I turned my back on a yellow stone I guess that was me too!
But sitting in the closest case was such a fine white pretty thing!
It seemed to be looking up in to my face, with a soft white glow that said hello don’t you remember me?
I couldn’t hear the sales girls chatter my mind was lost to this.
So I stood right there in Tiffany’s with a cold blank stare.
I stuttered as my words came out “may I pppplease see these ppppearls”.
She she looked at me and said “what’s the matter” but I still was in my dream.
And then it came with such a stroke it all was all too clear to me.
My baby was so pure and kind I think this was the point and God took me to this second counter to try to get me hooked.
His guidance was so right I stood there in a trance.
Oh my baby will wear these pearls tonight………to the summer dance!
