VerseLove – Day 17 of 30 – Choices

Gayle Sands is our host today at for VerseLove, inspiring us to write poems about choices. One Easter, my oldest daughter and I chose to make our eggs to last – not a year we dyed them, but a year we painted them instead, because she wanted to try something artistic and different.

Happy Easter!

Our painted Easter eggs


we blew insides out 

whites and yolks through tiny holes

all those years ago

painted them, hung them

in the kitchen sink window 

with clear fishing line

together, just us

today these eggs are treasures

memories cherished 

Matthew 28:6 

He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.

    1. Paul, they are so fragile. Only these remain of the more than one dozen we made. I made some as a child with my mother who died in 2015, and I made these in this picture with my older daughter when she was in high school. Thanks so much for reading and commenting! I always appreciate your kind words.
