2017 November PAD Chapbook Challenge Writers Digest/ You Sent it to Me, With Love and Your Best Wishes

You Sent it to Me, With Love and Your Best Wishes

it is small                      you see                         no more than five by three

i can hold it in one hand          it creates a space           to put things in

to hold them safe         it has flown through the mail    more than once

it is covered with stamps          and there is a customs sticker     on the front

handwritten notations              on each side                 it is a box from you

i don’t remember                     what it originally held        now it is cast aside

but still          your best wishes remain inside               your name on the front

Oh this is so sweet, Annell.

Christmas Comes Slowly/dVerse/early

Christmas Comes Slowly I avoid what comes too early Instead will wait for Christmas A long wait indeed But send my love for now ...
