BECAUSE WE MET

BECAUSE WE MET

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Because we met ... 
I feel myself untainted, unhampered, and unencumbered by men,
  intoxified by an electrified and adventurist spirit.
Life has become an earnest adventure composed of freshly claimed and previously unknown virtue.
Should a life as mine have been void of such extraordinary pains and situational negatives,
I should have missed its triumphs, glories, and emerging successes.
Should a life of mine have been void of negatives,
I should have altogether missed its enhancing and enduring positives.
But here I find myself privy to attending and magnificent realities:
The experience of darkness enhances the experience of light.
The experience of blindness leads to an appreciation of sight.

None can dispel the glorious and luminous wonders God provides and procures for each man's life.
Not a single man at all ...
 but as He has ordained it.

Because we met ... 
The employment of risk is now a highly employed virtue composed of organic and original substance and a discovery of rare and priceless jewel.
The scarlet gem, the stone of red;
The Beryled beauty, the crimson thread.
The Stone of Eternity ...
prized and held in the Adventurist's hands.
Dazzled. Bejeweled. Unmanned.
A white and pearled strand clasped tightly 'round her neck.
She traces them gently ...
------
The willingness to dare led her into the deep,
  into a vast reservoir and treasure trove of keep,
 and magnificent discovery.
The Stone-maker called her ....
She has tread endless trails of journey, met with countless new discoveries,
 mingled with "miners" yet recovering in the deep.
And the Stone-maker keeps calling.
She has recovered wisdom's jewels and wears them provokingly.
By plummet and degree ...
a summit of depth and mastery is her reward.
She who burrows herself deep into the redemptive mines of keep,
 shall come out attaining.
Tanzonite, Opal, Red Beryl, Alexandrite shall be hers.
Jewels discovered in the deep,
the Adventurist's keep.
