19–Giveaway

at 3 A.M. I woke to hear the

words of Christ in my waking sleep

it is more blessed to give than receive

and i knew the blatant error of this

world culture  so different from the

potlatch giveaways of our continental

ancestors who understood this simple

truth to give is where the happiness

lies beyond what liberation taught me

in the sixties beyond what getting paid

became the path to work beyond this

get to give i find the deepest pleasure

in work and play the day makes sense

in the open hand the free we call it

free from strings from greed from need

even the promise is that if we give in sacred

secret then a grateful universe rewards in

multitudinous abundance more than any

charge  or fame or grandiosity could give
