An Alternate Reality

My Treasured Gift

I am not much of a creator
            I can’t draw or paint
            I am a mediocre musician at best
            I’m a rather simplistic poet

 But, beautiful photos or paintings
            with interesting subjects and unusual angles
            open my mind 

Stirring music
            emotionally performed
            frees my soul 

Rhythmic words
             synchronously placed just right
             make me sigh and smile in wonder

 I may not be much of a creator
            but as an involved observer, an interested appreciator,
            a lover of other’s creations,
            there my true talent lies and isn’t that a treasured gift indeed.
