The Knotted Necklace

4 September 2023

The knotted gold necklace

never seen

left alone, tangled up in a box

never touched

too confusing to loosen

never lifted

all the twists and turns

never noticed

no patience to unravel

never worn

the light of day

glistens through the window

a shining glow

touched by a delicate softness

pulled apart with presence

a gift released from the inside

smoothed out, shaken out, freed

to the way it was when it was created

a cherished gold necklace

chosen and adorned for all to see.
