A thought for the season…

A Gift Unwrapped

Release is required for all creation
A plant from the earth
A child from the womb
A word from a pen
A breath from the voice.

Release from the old
Makes way for the new
Allows the innovation
To arise from necessity
Where to cling
Would close opportunity’s door.

At year’s end we acquire
Hold tight to tradition,
Relatives, friends and each other
We aspire to perfect memory creation
To make something worthy
To hang onto into the future.

If we could let go
Be for this moment
At peace
We could then pause
Amidst the rush of expectation
Stop capturing the past for our future
And be for the present
A gift unwrapped.
