I like to think
the road ahead
is scattered with small treasures
left behind for me to find:
a feather,
a penny,
a colorful stone,
even a single ruby red rose.

I keep each treasure I find
and give a silent “thanks”
to whomever or whatever
placed it in my path.

I’m sure your own winding road
has lots of little gems
just waiting to be discovered.
All you have to do is look.
