Meek Meets Mighty

Cobweb clings to the corner
Intricate design
Woven in silence
Now abandoned to dust
Who graced her company?
One came for dinner
Another for dessert
How often I think I’m the only one in the room
Who will clean up the mess

Hope whispers a memory
Intricate design
400 years silence
Broken by a baby’s cry
I still cling to dust
Though darkness only feeds
A grievous appetite
I am abandoned no more
Why do I think I’m the only one in the room
Who can clean up the mess?

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.

    Beautiful reminder of Christmas:
    “400 years silence
    Broken by a baby’s cry”

    I enjoyed reading this, and felt there was more in it at each read, v nice! I paused at the 400 years reference, very well done indeed.

    A thought-provoking seasonal poem at a time which can seem full of empty glitter!

  4. I think asking for help is more a sign of strength than weakness.
