that I shall write you a little offering everyday
through each of these ten
like Scheherezade and her stories.
that I shall hand you each day
a gemstone in words
as bright and polished
as you move my hand.
that I shall offer you a garland
of the words and thoughts
that you yourself place in my heart.
that each of these upcoming days
shall be an opportunity
to let you speak to me
and through me.
that I will pour
the discipline that comes
from the strength with which you surround me,
the creativity that is
your energy manifest in my life,
the heart that is
an instrument for your love and compassion,
into text and image.
that I shall write you
a little offering everyday
with all my heart.
