gifts from faraway lands

gifts from faraway lands




like a gentle breeze
that bears gifts from a faraway land

she, a poet-writer
strings my little words
into postcards perfumed with hedge-flowers

she, a maker
enfolds my quiet world
into her lovely quilt

the memory of their kindness
will always tinkle in my heart

.

the magic in this world
seems to work
in whispers and small kindness

let my thoughts come to you
when I am gone
like the afterglow of sunset
at the margin of starry silence
