A Material Gift to Honor the Man

Who Did not Collect Material Gifts

List made

Checked twice

At the top

A gift for you

With glassy eyes I stare

At the milky blank space

Where the gift should be written

No idea…

There is no word for lack of it

Fold and unfold the paper

Wrinkled and torn like a photo

By the Starns twins

Palms itch

Idea after idea rushes to be rejected

None seem right

I listen to the songs of the season and sigh

Holiday load would be lightened

If only a slick idea

Would materialize

Christmas morning will be tragic

For lack of gift to give

Snow is expected

Visability low

Note:  Sometimes it is not the buying of the gift at the shopping mall, but the idea of the perfect gift to give.  The holiday has become one big “potlatch.”  And we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to find that perfect gift.  I selected the image of the book, The Gift, one of my favorites.    And Merry Christmas to all…….
