A Haiku - The Almost Forgotten Valentine

The same gift...every day, always.

Rich or poor, He asks the same gift from all.

Psalm 51:16-17

Other gifts won't do.

Our broken hearts we give Him.

Love eternal, true.

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.

Kay: His love is not just waiting for us, it envelopes us as we speak.

sue: doing better as whatever it was subsides and energy rises, make every day Valentine's Day, too.

duffsmom: for a poem to be considered "Well done - and well said" is high praise indeed!

Gypsy: the "greatest gift of all" which you mention, is in fact a gift we give ourselves from our broken hearts and contrite spirits. I know you agree, but we don't always think of it in that way.
