you are the gift!

i’d like to think
companionship is gift
we give each other

mutual mutuality
congenial congeniality
a cup of tea and poetry

in the garden
beg God’s pardon
walked together three

traditions worthy
bring dear family in
closer company

grand alma mater’s
anthem sings loyal

as faith enables
hungry sinners join
around graced table

dare to cross borders
dare not burn bridges
open eyes to see

friendly faces in
surprising places
tap hearts deep spaces

to simply be present
(and mostly pleasant)
is love’s best present!

My gift to Abhra & friends at dVerse Poets and in observance of Random Acts of Poetry Day!

    Without kindness & love this world would just be a veil of tears. Your gentle poetic reminds us, as parents, spouses, & friends that giving of ourselves often becomes the most cherished of gifts; smile.

    I think to lend your ear and give your time is often the most appreciated gift.. and it is also a gift to yourself as well.. there is truly win-win here.
