Today was the start of summer quarter and I am taking a creative writing course. We had an assignment today that was rather specific in how we were to format it and even giving us the starting line. So what did I write about? What else? Jewelry of course! This is a bit rough, I haven’t really edited or revised it, but that’s ok. I’m sure ya’ll forgive me 😉
“I couldn’t hold on to a nickle,
Every penny was spent as soon as I received it.
Sorting through shiny glass beads.
Awed by the colors,
Inspired by the possibilites.
Threading my needle and weaving a pattern,
Sucking away the drop of blood from my finger.
Searching for just the right combination,
Working tirelessly until it’s done.
Glorious satisfaction and pride at the end.
Obsessed like a dragon over her hoard.”
And in honor of that poem-thingy I found this picture (I love using google!)
