Happy Holidays

Gift Giving
I don’t need anything but you.
A smile a laugh, let’s raise a glass.

Don’t give me something I have to dust.
How about a meal we don’t have to cook.

Don’t agonize over what to buy.
A warm hug is always the right size.

No delicate, awkward gift exchange
like a china plate atop a teeter-totter.

Just give me a kiss that I can return.
And I will carry your love everywhere.

This poem is my response to the Monday Poetry Prompt.

Is there a difference between a gift and a present? Yes, according to Merriam Webster.

Are you a writer, still looking for last-minute gifts? Check out The Season of Giving blog post by horror novelist Priscilla Bettis.

No matter what holiday you choose to celebrate this month, I hope it is joyful and brings you peace.
