Keeper of Prayers

If there was a keepsake box
for the keeping of prayers~
It might be hand painted in a soft light tan
with white stripes on the sides.
This box would have the word
Prayers painted on the lid.
Cottage roses would be painted in soft pink
 with light aqua filler flowers
 trailing to one side.
A keepsake box that would tie
with vintage ribbon and lace trim.
One that would open to find
a sweet bird watching over the contents
while she tends to her nest.

A place to hold letters and keepsakes,
prayer lists and dreams.
A holder for wishes and hopes,
Yes, if there was a keepsake box,
I'd paint it this way and place
it on the shelf
Have a wonderful November weekend.
