This poem came in late 2005, the day after I decided to devote much more attention to the development of this website:



                         The Giving


Is purpose.

Through all my years growing toward sky and sun,

I was self-contained, though concerned.

And was good, in my branching out.

Yet now, in later years, I

find the full joy of my giving,

that love that returns to God and others what

was most precious: life itself.

I discovered, that through the years before,

I was but stem, not flower.
