Gifts

*

After fifteen

years of maturing,

pure white innocent beauties

charmed honey bees in working

all over the sweet succulent bouquets

 

The sun and the moon cherish the buds in green

to grow bigger into shiny globes in a few more months

 

Oleaginous splash spread in the air fills my nostrils

as I picked the juice of the heaven, the blessing

of the earth are finally handed to my palms

 

These splendors in golden yellow

to marigold hold me so dear 

 

The treasures in my life,

such pleasures to

see, feel, smell

and taste

Gems

*

Just like

oranges and

avocados harvested

from our garden for years

I have seen my life as the gift

out of the heavens and the earth

 

After many years of trying, I’ve begun

to see myself a tiny green bud, growing into

a mature woman, who needs very little

 

All the breeze, the mist, raindrops,

the sun, and the moon have

settled me into a vessel,

who sees profusion

 

I am so grateful

to live a life,

unfolding

to see

only

Abundance

within
