Sprinkling glitter

sprinkling glitter
on my childhood artwork,
brushing away
the bits of sparkle
that just won't stick

  1. Another subtly metaphorical poem that makes the reader pause & ponder. What are those "bits of sparkle" that don't stick to us?
    A nice bit of seasonal glitter, too!

  2. The sparkles that don't stick - there's a lesson in there somewhere, I think. Very thoughtful and a lovely "harkening back" to childhood Christmas preparations.

    1. thanks, jenny and wendy. I made cards and other things using glitter. yes, not all of it would stick, though.

  3. Ah, I remember those glitter projects. It's best to brush the non-sticking bits, isn't it? Quite true on many levels. Great poem!
