Wrapped In Velvet

wrapped in velvet
you gift me colors
and when I dabble with my canvas
you take them away

like a breeze that caresses
in a warm sultry noon
turning into a hurricane
me, bereft, losing it all

gifts can't be bought
they are carriers of love
faith promises and hope
of warmth, a subtle
rainbow

alas
only if gifts could be bought

  1. Amrit, so true I think that the best and most important gifts cannot be bought. They are given to us in different ways, and sometimes very unexpectedly!

  3. Money cannot buy the most important things in life. Well expressed. All this frenetic spending at Christmas is positively sickening...the whole Christmas message is missed!

  8. This is amazingly vivid. Wow. The giving, the taking away - the control by another person. Gifting - the undercurrent of obligation. Timely ponderings. Powerful, and beautiful, too. Thank you. Wow!

    How disappointed many have been. They have money but at a loss on what to buy. Great thoughts Amrit!
