The gift

I have a gift

with words,

or at least

I give my words

as gifts,

but others

show this gift

in ways with

wood or steel,

or in the

musician’s tune

that rumbles with

creative delight,

or in drops of

paint or pencil

flashed against

a canvas blank.


I have a gift

and give the

gift of self,

as do all who

choose to

see that

finer self

that shines

through creativity.
