I give you this gift

please don’t try to 

make money from it

I give you this gift

because, it is everybody’s

It is truth, it is beauty

You will see the beauty

only if you keep it

not sell it.

I give you this gift

because it’s not mine

to keep, to hide, to hold,

The truth is –

It bleeds out

It permeates 

It emulsifies

I captured this beauty


proceeding to gaze

upon its grace

purity displayed

I held it in place,

Truth is- 

I give you this gift

because you are 


A gift given


right here

beauty shared

not taken.
