Unwrap Those Ribbons

Updated on December 12, 2016

Can It Be Done ?

I leave it to you the reader

I know the answer and only one other person holds the key

A ribbon is usually complementing something that is wrapped

So to unwrap ribbons the ribbons would have to cover the gift

You can untie a ribbon on a gift

Not so fast

The ribbons could be the gift and then you would have to unwrap the gift to get to the ribbons

What kind of gift would be a box of ribbons?

All I know when you find out the answer

You will be happy you did

How can I say that ?

When I don't even know you

If I am wrong

I will pay the piper

If I am right you have to read another beautiful, insightful, exquisite hub

I am always fascinated by a hubbers magic

They have all the power

They read someone's writing

They can chose to continue reading or stop after the first line

They can save it for later

Let it go and let it drift away like an ocean wave

They can be critical and judge mental

They can be cruel and down right mean

Then again they can appreciate what you have tried to accomplish

No matter what mistakes you have made in the past

They can forgive your errors and over look your faults

See deeper into the core of your being

The hubber can dive into the meat of your body

Pull apart one thought and find another

You can make someone's day

By leaving a comment

Go away silently not saying a word

You can come back five minutes later

To give it another go

Sleep on it

Print it out and examine it more closely

Blow it up to a life size version

Even that's too much for me to swallow

My goal as a writer

Is to stir a few dead brain cells

Maybe activate a dozen more

I am lifeless and just words on paper

That's not true

I am not even that

I am blocks of words on the computer screen

Images of light and darkness

A mere thought carried one step farther

A goal with a purpose in mind

A series of words that make no sense

I could be just a bunch of questions without an answer

Now that would be cruel

I could be a riddle or a poem

What if I was a stoem

A story written with a poem

Then again I could be all of the above

Once again you have all the power

I will let the world of great hubbers decide

Am I alive or just a dream

If I'm alive feed me because I'm hungry

If I am a dream

Set me free

Watch me grow larger than the biggest tree

      Gypsy Rose Lee I love your response. I read a hub Ribbons Of Time by Nellieanna it moved me so much I wrote a riddle so someone might find it. Either way I am just happy to write and watch my words take flight. Thank you for reading and sharing. Wonderful days are left after an incredible journey.

      Dream, you always stir your readers, sometimes quicker than other times, sometimes more deeply than other times, but there's always something significant.
