Is like frosting on a cookie
Is like icing on a cake
Is like cheddar on a casserole
Is like a fragrant herb in a master
Chefs piece de resistance!

It is an icebreaker
It is an ace in a hole
It is a mending tool
It is a pick me up
For both the giver n receiver!

How often we forget
Those who care for us
Those who tend to us
Those who love us
Unstintingly, always!

A tiny sliver of appreciation
Will work wonders for both
The giver and the receiver and
Each shall feel a quiet happiness
Reveling in this minor miracle!

“Ignorant men
Don’t know what they hold in their hands until
They’ve flung it away.”
Sophocles, Ajax, c. 450  B.C.
