Gilt of Gold

ancient bedrock rich
heaps a swirling pan
nuggets snuggle out of sight
debris spills across the lip
renews ripples in the creek
treasured gold twinkles

awakens timeworn sin
and lacy webs of guilt
from faults of my mind

All that Glitters,
Original Watercolor

Sunday Scribblings prompt: Money

I like the connection between gold and sin. Very nice painting as well, it would look good on my wall.

I like the way you see the world so succunctly. We look, we find and we misuse our finds. Neat. ;)

I like how it all hangs on the word 'faults'

The word 'faults' stuck in my mind, too. Very succinctly written.
