the joy of recent gifts

yesterday i was pleasantly gifted.
today i was gifted too.

yesterday wee basil seedlings from a rare and hard to find taiwanese line.
today an heirloom mater weighty and sweet.

gifts each beautiful - each alive - each thoughtful.
each given outside of any giving event.
each a pleasant surprise.

each giver - a student - fine thing to be blessed with more than a few good eggs - thanksgivings early.
