Like the scientists

who unearthed the richest

deposit of amber

ever

Who found trapped in marbles

of ancient fossilized

tree sap

hundreds

of tiny bouquets of

miniature flowers

in New Jersey*

no less!

I look at you

and see

treasure.

  1. The trapped-in-amber concept catches my heart and mind.

    It seems to take something like this to preserve the ancient things. For instance: the mammoth tusk find in Seattle. What a beauty. I wonder what helped it stay unscathed? Is it the last of its previous owner, meaning, are there more parts or creatures at this site? The stories it evokes are mind-boggling. Can’t wait to see what the scientists at the Burke Museum make of it.
