Pearl of Great Value

So bright, so beautiful, so pure.
So often hidden in the depths.
The pearl stands as the thing to be loved,
the moment to be treasured,
the divine essence of our existence
the most truthful and transcendent treasure.

‘Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.’ Matthew 13: 45-6
