The Gift

Feliz Navidad all you

Gathering Stones Strung on Threads

The gift lies wrapped
in ordinary butcher paper
unaware of its own treasure
bound tight by the twine of time
It bears no tag so as to tell
for whom it was intended
or by whom it was sent

The box sits innocently
among the fancy packages
that stack up under the tree
The red cashmere scarf for her
The lamb skin gloves for him
The fountain pen for you
The new journal for me

When all’s been opened
we’ll sigh a sigh of relief
that tells of expectations met
and smile at those none can meet
while the gift so unexpected
sits unclaimed where set
by one too shy to speak

“The mind so near itself cannot see distinctly” ~ Emily Dickinson
