A Letter To The Gifted
I must be gifted
You must be gifted
We’re all gifted
But what is gifted?
Having something innate and rare?
Leonardo’s ability to paint the Mona Lisa?
Michelangelo’s sculpting of David?
I may be wrong to say those are expressions of what is innate and rare
But not it
that’s what is innate
your soul and it’s expression
In the way you love, laugh, smile, and think.
that’s the gift
you’re the gift
And you’ve been gifted to this mother (earth) which nurtures you.
You have been gifted to me
and I you
so I write this letter to remind you
of the gift you are
