The Lowly

Hunting for river sand
tracing for water
turns me mad.

The no value commodities
have shot up sky high,
baffling me almost.

Gold and silver shine
with a blindfold sparkle
a sensation, on the other side

these two lack luster
seem lowly, all the same exhibit
an expensive grandeur,

Unprecedented. I explore
their availability. plead

The efforts I put in
tire me out. I go
with renewed vigour.

Sand and Water
the one sandy.
the other colourless

tell us that humility
commands a price
undemanding in assumption
