Thank you to all who read this, and helped give this work a name!
Panning for gold
in your eyes,
prospecting for love
in your heart,
knowing the waters must
wash away so much
before the ore will twinkle
like your smile.

Swirling waters,
grubstake romance,
filing a claim to you
was so very hard.
The promise of riches,
of lonesome mornings
dispelled by you
drives me on to -

Can it be? Do I see?
Washed away clean,
holding in my hands,
a gem-quality beauty,
like you.
