Hidden Treasures

Pearls in her handsSomewhere in time, a hand is cradling within its palm, dozens of priceless, living pearls.  The hand lifts and the pearls are cast into a wilderness area containing nothing but sand, scorpions, cactus and dogs digging for bones.

 The wind blows and buries the pearls in the hot sandy desert.  The pearls can’t help but wonder why the hand cast them into the wilderness.  The sand is harsh and painful.  Making the most of a bad situation, the pearls await their deliverance.
