Gift — A Dream

“Gift” — C.Birde, 7/19

 

Long-limbed

& lean,

she sits cross-legged

on gleaming

oak floor,

a vision of health

& strength

& youth,

smile measurable

in inches,

lumens,

decibels.

Between us,

a gift —

a large box,

lid & bottom

wrapped separately

in raw blue silk

& tied up

in pink satin

ribbon;

a mere tug

of angle-cut ends

required to release

& lift the lid,

to free

what lies

within.

She waits —

patient,

certain —

her smile

like sun-light

shining…

 

 

— C.Birde, 7/19
