Gift


The greatest gift is to find your Self in an Other.
Then you will flow from your Self into your Self.
I have seen a brook, a trickle from a snow field,
rain in a gutter, blood oozing from a cut,  
a falling braid of milk between the pitcher
and the cu
p, a moonbeam, your eyes.
All these were one stream, not many,
the river of Me flowing into You.
For each creature is conceived to melt
and flow down on other creatures,
the way a mother pours something sweet
on the bread of her child
while it is still warm.
