Treats From Kay.

She put them on the table before us,

Two small packages,

Clear smooth cellophane

Covering a white packet

Tied in gold.


We were intrigued at these gifts,

“They are for you,

For my special customers”,

Intrigued we wondered what they were,

What wonder they held for us.


The gold band was removed,

The package was unsealed,

And there in front of us they sat,

Two treats of golden glory,

Just waiting to be eaten.


We ate them with wonder ,

We ate them with joy,

As the taste of their beauty,

Passed our lips in glory,

And took us to heaven.

      A lovely gesture - little surprises in life can bring such joy' Last night my daughter rang - my grandson wanted to speak with me. He had gone to bed and came down sobbing. My daughter had explained to him that I am going into hospital for a hernia repair and he was really upset. I was so touched and just want to give him a big hug - but I won't be seeing him until after the op next Tuesday (yes you'll be spared my postings for a few days ).

      • Goldfinch60

        Yes Michael it is amazing how these little gestures bring such joy.

        I do hope your operation goes well and you don't end up singing castrato.

        • Michael Edwards

          Thanks Andy - yes I could form a duo with Orchi

            Look at that, someone who treasures your company gives you a small token of appreciation and you go all poetic. You must be a poet!
