The fog is black.
The cloud is white.
and
The sky is blue.

The branch is brown.
The leaf is green.
and
The rose is red.

Though
It’s risky…

Though
It’s struggling…

Though
It’s scary…

This gift is
Neither square nor star.
Neither circle nor triangle.
Neither long nor wide.

With red wrapping papers,
It is

Neither wrapped up
Nor packed
In an empty box.
It is

Neither a selling product
Which can be bought
From the store
Nor a mailing good
Which can be stamped
At the post office.

Naked, stamp-less,
Shapeless, product-less.
You may wonder,
“What is this?”

Slowly,
let’s deep down to the inner self.
Tears, smiles.
Comforts, discomforts.
Joy, pain.
and
life and living
are
the beautiful treasures
to share
with you
as a Gift of Love.
