Over on Weekly Prompts this week, the challenge is to come up with something to do with gifts.

I did write a short poem this week but, basically, it was rubbish. So I’ll make do with a tiny amount of prose instead.

The gift is empathy. We don’t even need to go to the level of having been through the same experience as somebody else, simply to appreciate that it has put them in a dark place, just like the dark places we have found ourselves in.
