Secret Keepers

PAD Challenge Day 2: For today’s prompt, write a secret poem.

Paint Tins;
they don't say much
just sit there waiting
for tint and brush
and a world of creating


Vegetables;
quiet creatures, they are
and quite ordinary-looking
waiting to be supper-stars
with blending, baking, cooking

Seeds;

the face of a seed does not draw
exclamation
but oh, not so after we plant and wait...
for God's creation
video


Pen; 


he only tells what we permit
and spells what we allow
and what remains the rest of it
no one will ever know

This is a lovely day to discover
and uncover
what might otherwise remain
a secret

Happy April 2nd!

  2. What a smashing sideboard redo!
    And love the day-to-day tableaus interspersed with verse.
    Especially like the staged harvest trugs - creates a celebration out of what could just be work.
    Thank for sharing!

    1. thank-you...It always astonishes me what a little paint can do:) I was so apprehensive about the color red but I love it too! The palette in my home is mostly earth-tones and I think it needed a kick of red!

      ...the veggie pics make me eager to get dirt beneath my nails again...its been a cold while since those shots were taken. We're still struggling to stay above freezing here.
