Precious, or: Born again human

Sevenling (I am gifting)

I am gifting her with an incredible fluency in English,
which will open countless doors for her; the open-mindedness
to brave the complexity of truth; and my undying love to ground her.

Every day, she continues to gift me her endless, adoring love, which I live for;
a purpose in this world, which gets me out of bed in the mornings;
and an identity more precious to me than any other.

More than six years ago, I was born a father.

    1. It is something I was thinking about after I dropped her off at kindergarten this morning, and as I was thinking about it, I realized that my thought reminded me of a sevenling – and here we are ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. So heartfelt. So natural. So you. You do have that unique flair of gettin your feelin across without sounding maudlin.

      1. Oh lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ and you write
        The night away
        You bring in the dawn
        Making the world all warm
        Itโ€™s your poetry I adore
        Your work is interesting and itโ€™s something that will never bore.

        Bravo , David ๐Ÿ’–

  2. Thatโ€™s a beautiful experience canโ€™t be expressed in words ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

  3. This really spoke to me, the gratitude for gifts from a child. Indeed, fatherhood makes for a very special and proud label. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Beautiful, David. From this, my 5p would be to recommend alongside the timed writing Gendlin’s technique of Focusing (over the playing with techniques.. perhaps even).
    But I love to be wrong also.

          1. ๐Ÿ˜€ – has a book by Gendlin himself (2003) that sound like the ticket … ‘Gain direct access to your body’s intuition…’
