A Scavenger Hunt

little boy

Let me take you there

to that place in the meadows,

the corner of the world,

where you can be

completely YOU.

Let’s run in and out

of the maze of illusion

and find truth

in this scavenger hunt.

Don’t be afraid

of the darkness in your thoughts,

they can’t really hurt you

unless you allow

their regimen to be your dictatorship.


Come to that place of peace.

Let me in and together

we can find

Serenity sitting by the water

ready to push you in

to find what Authenticity looks like.

We can fish out Grace,

Truth, and Hope

to add to the list

of invaluable commodities.

And, when we are done

the quest would have been

a playful act

of moments intertwined

to make your life even richer

by creating a life of joy.


“Searching is half the fun: life is much more manageable when thought of as a scavenger hunt as opposed to a surprise party.” – Jimmy Buffett
