Hello everyone! This week, we are celebrating Thanksgiving in the United States. In my role as a parent as well as a child and family therapist specializing in giftedness, I am deeply grateful for the children who add so much beauty to my life. It was with them in mind, that I wrote this poem of gratitude. Despite how crazy and stressful things can get sometimes, may we always see the gifts that lie within.

Colors of You

by Tina Harlow

 

Grownup life

so black and white

overshadowing

the colors of you

 

Your Intensity

fiery red

The root of your passion

enabling you to muster

the courage to fight

when the right reason

renders all other options

useless

 

Your Sensitivity

pure white

extending warmth

understanding

unsolicited empathy

to a world

consumed

with self-gratification

 

Your Curiosity

sunshine yellow

ceaseless questions

a bridge from what is

to what ought to be

Seeking…

essential ingredient

of change

 

Your anxiety

army green

misunderstood

a moral compass

guiding you

to authenticity

internal resolution

and growth

 

Your perfectionism

icy blue

glacier pool

splashing frustration

enduring polarity

making way

for the emergence

a masterpiece

of the soul

 

Your Sense of Justice

penetrating purple

eyes that see

beyond arbitrary rules

to what is right

what is fair

what is optimal

what is needed

 

For the brilliant colors of you, may I always be grateful.
