The Gift of Time

The gift of time
So gently it passes us
Like a breeze
It carries us through the burden of youth
Yet we barely hear the rush of the wind in our hair
Then ever so swiftly
It weighs us
Like excess baggage on our journey
And we fear the reality of passing years
Creeping
Stealing
Sneaking up behind
Like a childish game that no one dares to play
Anymore
Still, the gift sits on our doorstep
Its presence felt but never acknowledged
To the full
It sits, unrecognized for all it holds
The gift
Stares us in the eyes
The gift
There for the taking
Should we
Could we
Dare we?
Take it in both hands, rip and tear at its disguise
Revealing the beauty there within
All the while ours
All these years silent
Now open and revealed like a wound in the sunshine
Healing
Raw
Shrinking
Ours
The gift of time, always ours

Beholden, I grasp it
Wanting it so badly, for all it can offer
For just a moment
Just one more moment

Please don't steal it
I am so grateful
This gift is mine…

…the gift of time

A Salty Taste of Wisdom

A Taste of Wisdom

By: Author Unknown



An aging Hindu master grew tired of his apprentice

complaining and so, one morning, sent him for some salt.



When the apprentice returned, the master instructed the

unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of

water and then to drink it.



"How does it taste?" the master asked.



"Bitter," spit the apprentice.



The master chuckled and then asked the young man to take

the same handful of salt and put it in the lake.



The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and once the

apprentice swirled his handful of salt in the water, the

old man said, "Now drink from the lake."



As the water dripped down the young man's chin, the master

asked, "How does it taste?"



"Fresh," remarked the apprentice.



"Do you taste the salt?" asked the master.



"No," said the young man.



At this the master sat beside this serious young man, who

so reminded him of himself, and took his hands, offering:
