It's a Miracle!

A Tissue Is A Tool

Little things, small items
get my full attention
from time to time.
Right now, it's a tissue,
Take one. No, go ahead,
take another one.
Don't use it, quiet yet.
Just look at it, examine it.
And, know it to be strong.
There are a lot of fibers
and recycled paper
in a freshly plucked tissue.
Think of the many uses
tissues have, other than
nose blowing or shoe shining.
They are absorption pads
for spilled liquids, or
for picking up a dead bug
Paper tissues are vital
where things happen
and you could name many.
But things not bad enough
to call 911 or a fix-it man
use ready tissues for tools.

Oh, how I love this, Bill - the many uses of tissues (bless you!). Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

How Kate's comment made me laugh! Bill, you've taken something simple that we use everyday, and have made us realize its importance.

I agree with Felix, and yes if tissues could talk, the teales they would tell. These little pieces of thin paper have been used time and again, and again, and again, and will never stop being used, even when everything else goes digital, or is incorporated into the computer. Thank you for sharing Bill.

May the Lord Jesus bless you and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))) poet sister, Barbie

...and lets not forget the number of teardrops that have been absorbed by these simple soft pieces of paper over the years...if tissues could talk..

Well, I agree with Kate, entirely! :-)

great for padding bras, in my experience... JOKEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! You should try it! :)) Somehow only a man could have written this... a woman would have spoken about its scent and the feel of it on the cheek etc... I love this as an observation of the male mind... others may disagree... I'll be back to see! :)) xx

Isn't it amazing how you can take a simple object and make is so important. Also gave me a laugh. Wonderful
