It’s In the Mail!
The Last weekend of February.
I paused to think about how fast this month moved along.
Not only is February a shorter month, it’s also a fast-moving month.
In addition, it was a month that brought a few nice surprises.
*First_ I had a taste of Christmas in February – I received a sparkling Christmas card from Carrie Deleucourt. She lives in Paris, France. Carrie told me she heard that I loved to get real, hold-in-the-hand Christmas cards. Yes! I do love a card that has heft to it and that can be enjoyed for a very long time. The card she sent me is so beautiful and I will certainly cherish it. Thank you, Carrie, for this thoughtful gift!
*Next_ I received a check in the mail from American Printing House for the Blind. The check was sent to me because my artwork won FIRST PLACE in the crafts division of the InSights21 exhibition. This is the 8th time my mixed-media fiber art was selected for exhibition at this show in Louisville, KY. I have won an award each of those times.
Currently, I am preparing another piece of my art to send out in the few days for the 9th time to American Printing House for the Blind. This time, I chose something quite small and precious. Wish me good luck!
Finally, I share a short poem today.
This is an ACROSTIC POEM.
If you look down the left side of the poem, each line begins with a letter of my name.
Yesterday the sky was gloomy and dark
Nevertheless, large black crows visited me
Dangerous cats were near the nest
All the birds are on high alert this morning
You can write the letters of YOUR NAME in a vertical line down the page.
Next, go BACK to the top and write a line for each of those letters of your name.
It is FUN and you can write about anything you like. It is your poem. Do it your way.
What do you think about that?
My poem describes the weather we are having here in western Pennsylvania as the seasons are transitioning from late winter towards early spring. As I write this article today, it is raining a lot. That is a good thing because I planted many spring flower bulbs in the fall. I can smile as I look out at the rain that I know is nourishing those bulbs and helping the roots to grow right now.
