Priceless Gift

The frantic crowd bustles by,
eyes searching--oh elusive gift.
Where can you be? Their footsteps
utter the drone of duty.
Hurrying past me, I stand alone
watching snowflakes fall
across their frozen steps.

Destinations undone,
they fumble for the shiny
bauble that will make all perfect
and you come up from behind me,
fingers touching my cheek in 'hello'
and I understand the message
of the priceless gift.

Short and sweet, Ann.

It is amazing how you've condensed this lesson so well...and retained such beaty at once.

Nicely said... :)

It is evident to me that the most precious gifts are not those that are purchased. This poem says that in a most refreshing way.

I like the length of this piece, it presents all it has to without any extra clutter! Good work!
