Don’t Give It Away

purple flower 3

Solid… like a length of steel over railroad ties…

Straight and true… exactly as it should be.

Somehow appearing safe…secure… certain.

Cool…on the surface showing only a silent ease…

Even and calm…exactly as it should be.

Many storms weathered…aware…enlightened.

Intelligent…well educated and quite well spoken…

Words well chosen…exactly as they should be.

Wishing well…offering thoughts…comforting.

Wise…like one who has seen it all before and knows…

Knowing the realities…exactly as they should.

Advising others course…helping guide…leading.

Distant…like the perfectly ripe fruit just beyond reach…

Letting others in only enough… exactly as expected

Giving just enough… without giving away…anything.
