While the pious people give up something they love for Lent,
the Flower shamelessly indulges in one of her favorite activities.
Don’t judge me!
When else would I decorate Easter eggs?
When I start this activity, my library is clean.
As I progress, the napkin pieces pile up and scraps blow down.
The glitter gets scattered and the glue gets smattered.
Clean up? I find neatness stifling to my creative spirit.
I do occasionally sweep a path so that I won’t slip on a swath
or roll to my knees on those fancy microbeads.
The mess progresses until I am finished… Otherwise…
If one cleans up too soon, one may find it necessary to sort through the trash for a needed scrap.
When I finally finish after weeks of play, I mean work;
I fill baskets with my tiny masterpieces and give them to the people that I love.
This is how I pass my time WAITING (Foreshadowing for future pOst) for spring to arrive,
Playing with paper flowers inside until all the real ones can bloom outside.
