Poem of the Week: The Miracle of Reading

I mostly post my poetry first on Instagram, (unless it is a patron-exclusive poem).  Then, each Sunday here on the blog, I post the poem that has got the most Insta likes.
If you’re on Instagram, let’s follow each other. You’ll find my account Orna Ross.poetry here.
The poems are inspired by photographs, sometimes taken by me, sometimes by others.

My most popular poem on Instagram this week was “The Miracle of Reading”

And now for this week's poem:

Those who give
are never alone
And she had given over
two great gifts:
her attention
and her imagination
the great present
of her presence.
