Poem from a Friend

A dear friend, who is a musician/writer, sent me an email today.  I am both honored and flattered by his elegant prose.  Here it is:

For Amber

Seismic shifts
Forces unimaginalbe
The magic of creation
The mortal endeavor
Of a supreme will
A Goddess walks among us
Sharing her gifts

The simplicity and rhythm astonished me, but most importantly, the truth in every word.  The poem reminds me of how each of us on the planet have certain gifts, and, perhaps the greatest sin of all, is to not know them, and if we do know what these gifts are, fail to share them.  What a beautiful reminder to live life mindfully each moment of every day.
