Wow! I am in awe! What a beautiful, lovely way to illustrate that verse.

Some favorite lines from this are, "Or do you think that hoarding such manna will feed your lonely tomorrows?

And will squirreling away the blessing feed your winter heart?"

I love it!
Your use of words is pure artistry.
I should read this every day of my life.

Beautiful. I love how this poem builds in intensity, then ends quietly, but never gives up its message. Well deserved EC.
I;ll say it, I'm sorry that I didn't see ths piece until today. Congrats on an outstanding example of the proverb.
