December 3, 2015 Writers Digest/ Teacups -- Poets United Midweek Motif/Energy

Teacups

it is the season        shopping and good cheer       while at the bank

i noticed                  a small tree                             with cards on it

on each card            the names of children              in foster care

i examined a card     she is four years old               a short list of things

she wanted for christmas              the first thing on the card

was teacups              a simple request                      today i will go back

get the card and i will go shopping         for a very special christmas gift
    
                                                                                  ….teacups

Note:  I was at the bank, and noticed the tree, i examined a card, and asked the cashier about the tree and the cards attached.  I'm not sure why I didn't take the card, but I will get it today.  Can't wait to find the perfect teacups.

What a sweet wish, and lovely that it will be fulfilled. Maybe she remembers having teas with her mom. Or maybe she wants to have a tea party with her teddies. You will enjoy this shopping trip. I loved this, Annell.

I finished reading this poem with a huge smile on my face! Such a great way to re-energize giving. And a request that filled will make a moment of loveliness!

And it will mean everything to her particularly if it is sent from you - how simple our needs and requests are when we truly have nothing and are helpless to seek them ourselves...and yet i hope the universe always provides someone who cares ;)
