SIMPLENESS

Out there, so pure and bright,
Twinkles a spark of turquoise
Of sudden striking orange
At merest move of head.

Far finer than any gem
Mined and shaped by human hand,
Is that single drop of dew -
As plain, as simple and complete
As a star, a new-born babe,
Or the hope in the heart of a child.

 Tony Ritchie
