While walking down the street,
I couldn’t help but feel peace,
listening to the rustling leaves
without the company of cars.
Then something pungent struck me,
so tangible, I could reach out
and touch…the fragrance of wealth,
and for a fleeting moment,
eyes slowly blinking,
I felt a sense of yearning.
Perhaps, there are those moments
where wishes aren’t so Heavenly,
but very earthly, indeed.
However, the hunger subsided
as rapidly as it came to be
and I sighed, contentedly,
knowing God has provided me
with everything I truly need
