He dug
a crater deep,
into the arid bed
of the virgin earth,
filled it with
a magical liquid,
disguised its purity
in myriad colours,
mirroring
the dark side
of the sunlit sky.

From a spec
of worthless sand,
he made a
precious pearl,
hid it
in the folds
of an unassuming oyster,
flung it far
into the depths
of that
reflective sea.

Those who search,
Know.
others rarely believe
that the truth
could lie
so deep.
