tanka, other poetry, & insignificant writings of janet lynn davis
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!
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.
thanks, jenny and wendy. I made cards and other things using glitter. yes, not all of it would stick, though.
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!
hi and thanks, jennifer.
