Description: Reflective piece of self...we seldom look in the mirror to see the beauty that is within us. Sometimes we speak negatively of ourself and we forget that each one is a gift box.
If we take time to search for the beauty within, then pain, anguish, suffering cannot consume us. Instead we will consume it with beautiful thoughts of self...God made us with a wonderful thought in mind. 'Mankind is the greatest creation and masterpiece.' I often imagine God saying, "There is nothing more beautiful than my creation of man; a masterpiece, indeed, which I love."

The Gift Box -------------------------------------------
To self reflections....
A box lies adamantly across from me;
craftily wrapped in splendor and bows.
It shines like glittery gold
casting a reflection oh so bold.
What patience and stillness it holds?
Waiting to unfold; revealing
a lifetime of mysteries untold.
The object of which my eyes behold
stirs my curiosity of the unknown.
What past secret does it retain?
I contemplate the beauty in it;
so light a gift presented before me.
My fingers stroke it tenderly
as I perceive the significance it brings.
Shall I open it?
A still-life voice hidden within
needing attentive warmth of hands.
In tearing the sides with gentle care
the gifted box unveils with grace.
As I slowly peaked into the box
mirrors surrounded the inner part.
Peering down in depth;
The gift I saw was a reflection of me.
