What Invitation Awaits

Elegantly scribed calligraphy, gilt embossed,
On a golden platter, it awaits.
From its face, your name beckons.

Enveloped in royal hues,
Delicately opaque,
From its face, your name shines.

Too beautiful to open,
Too fine to spoil,
From its face, your name stares.

Later, covered in dust,
Unmarred by fingerprint,
From its face, your name whispers.

Obscured and untouched,
Passed over, passed by,
Its face now silent.

A monument, a memorial,
A time gone by,
Its face solemn.

What invitation awaits,
Had you only opened it,
What delight?

What invitation have you left unopened?
What invitation do you long for?
What invitations still await?

Rip open the envelope,
Embrace the page,
On its face, your name emblazoned.

Yield to the whimsy,
RSVP for adventure,
Your face reflects glory.

The date and time are set,
They are now, always,
Their face a mirror, your face shines.

You are most cordially invited
To the dance of life,
Have a ball, dear one.
