Gift



I wish I could gather forgiveness
like stones on a walk, place it
in jars or a smooth dish next to
fallen feathers and empty seashells
But it is a gift I must discover in myself,
wrapped up in tears, placed beside
regret covered in grief,
lit with love and set free

  2. Great collection of words and stones. Being so wonderfully inspired yet modest too. Enjoy yourself as we enjoy your words.
