Sept 22 flowers 011You often say, “I would give, but only to the deserving.”

The trees in your orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your pasture.

They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish.

Surely he who is worthy to receive his days and his nights,

is worthy of all else from you.

And he who has deserved to drink from the ocean of life

deserves to fill his cup from your little stream

Khalil Gibran
