Project 365 Day 4

Darn Migraine! I wasn't well last night and so I am late getting my picture posted for Sunday. The prompt was to take a photo of your Christmas Gift. And here is a thought to go with it.

My Christmas Present My Christmas present stares at me, A silver bulge beneath the tree, Tied with bright red bows. I pick it up--its ribbons slip And tingle on my fingertips. "What can you be?" I whisper low. I shake and poke and peer at it, Then put it back and sigh a bit. It will not tell me what it knows. Stiffly dressed in shiny clothes Of silver, waiting silently, My present sits...and stares at me. --Deborah Chandra
