The Christmas Vase

Cortes, visipix.com

This Christmas I received the gift of a vase.

Three of them.

Each has a full body and a very narrow opening.

Each was a gift from a child.

My post could end right there.

It is enough.

…Except that after the day I’ve had, these vases are speaking to me:

about my fretting and my overextending:

“Be full inside yourself.

Direct what it is you have to offer.

Let a strong focus give your gifts the space they need.

The way may be narrow, but anchored so, your bloom will express an inner fullness.”
