A Gift To Regift

An empty box
A blank screen
Books of paper
Words not yet assigned
No salience from another’s mind
Just quiet moments
I call mine

No choice to offer
A smile or frown
Lest silent gesture
Lets you down
Though many gifts
Can be adored
These three are
Hope restored

For an empty box
Is mine to fill
A blank screen – a playing field
And wordless books
Are a writer’s friend
A companion none can steal

When all are filled
And neatly stored
There may be one in need
An empty gift
I once received
Now may be used
to feed

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
