He gave me a present,
Not pretty and gift wrapped in silvery paper,
Not shoved in a box with a card on top,
He will give me an idea.
Gift wrapped in words,
Only thought of, not thought through
I can make it my own.
Take my gift and make it something special, he said,
take that idea and make it something magical,
Then wrap it in words and re-gift it,
I won’t mind,
Spread the ideas and watch as they blossom,he said.
A gift can be more than a material object.
It can be creativity that changes the world…
…one idea at a time.
