I heard a story of a man...
By a cave... near the sea..
 
He found a tattered canvas bag..
inside lay a lot of stones covered in Clay...
 
Intrigued just to see, those 'Useless’  stones, He threw them... Blindly into the shallow sea,
Until... He noticed stripped from clay...
.. being washed away..
those stones were Precious, Golden... being Cast Away! ..
 
That didn’t look like much on the Outside...
Beautiful, Dazzling and Sparkling ...
 
Makes me... Contemplate  in Today...
 How often do We try and see behind that
“External Clay”?...

If we take the time to contemplate on the external, the true beauty on the inside will avail itself. A good lesson in philosophy Good poem
