by Cheryl Merrick

Like a forgotten gift
gathering dust in
a deserted room,
the unused talent lies.

lost amid pressing demands,
and buried under laundry and dishes,
it remains,

Till, one day,
in a moment of
quiet reflection,
the older woman
comes across
the small gift
so carelessly overlooked
in younger, busier times.

Opening it, she discovers
a small treasure
which she, at last,
joyfully begins to share
with those around her.
