'An Extra Leaf' by Charrissa Browning

An Extra Leaf

Amongst the fields of lush green lies something beautiful but mostly unseen
Many will walk by
Not caring for the rare treasure
Their eyes focused on the fields of great measure
But for the one who stops and looks
A special plant they do see
A tiny clover with four leaves; not the typical three
An extra measure of blessings some think
A prize
A rarity
Tucked in your pocket it may bring great prosperity
Not designed like the rest
Not better
Not worse
Just a plant with an extra leaf
Created in part; to help us with the very simple belief
That treasures are not always what we think
Sometimes they require an extra look
Almost lost in a wink
To see the gift that we may miss
That extra leaf that brings with it . . .
. . . a beautiful bliss.
