gift

echoing across
time's never-ending
whispers of wisdom
your words
to my childhood ears
a gift
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
one single impression

I like the way that this weeks poem for the "gift" prompt connects to last weeks poem for "never-ending." Nice symmetry.

The wisdom finds its way to us when we are ready. Beautiful.

Amazing how those whispered messages come back to us when we need them.

The important whispers of life are certainly the treasures. These long stored words stay with us and mold our lives. We must pass it on. Your words are priceless, as is the gift of love. Let It be, "never ending", as it was given. Kudos.

wow--what a powerful remembrance to always be saying 'I love you' to all the ears...and eyes...

From Hafiz:

Admit something:
Everyone you see, you say to them,
‘Love me.’
Of course you do not do this out loud;
Otherwise, someone would call the cops.
Still though, think about this,
This great pull in us to Connect—
Why not become the one
Who lives with the full moon in each eye
That is always saying,
With that sweet moon Language,
What every other eye in this world
Is dying to Hear.

Thank you!!

The gifts of wisdom are some of the most precious. What a lovely poem (it reminded me of my grandmother and the gifts that she imbued in me before leaving us). xx, JP/deb
