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.

    Like the beachcombers

    who found calcified remnants sweet smelling, waxy and gray,

    coughed up by sperm whales, no less;

    treasures of “floating gold”

    prized by ancient Egyptians,

    on the coast of Australia,

    I look at you and see ambergris.
