An Old Spirit Found

An Old Spirit Found

written by: Andy Perrin



a small rectangular

wrapped in plain
brown paper

such perfect
crisp folds

green, red, and white ribbon tied
then lightly pulled

one corner lifted – torn
with brilliant inhalations

elated gasps
filled the room

eyes widened
hands on cheeks of smiling faces

the room overflowed
with joy

and an old spirit
