The Giver

“The Giver” – written and read through Walter

morning sunshine
radiates and does
not discriminate,
warming all it touches.

a gentle breeze,
an agent of change,
its fleeting caress
leaves a smile.

birdsong a mantra,
not to be understood
but heard as a
message of joy.

these gifts
give nothing;
these gifts expose
the giver.
