from gaping chasms
to highest mountains
from ocean’s opaque bed
to desert’s searing sun;
beauty, we seek
in bulks and heaps ~
insatiable need
blinds avid eye/I,
dulls (tactile) senses.

driven
to the brink of madness
by desperate search,
we seldom detect
or acknowledge
the small pearls and diamonds
scattered
beneath our bare feet.
