Button lies heavy.
It’s hard, black surface
Standing still and
Finding small comfort
Among the shiny, wrinkled ribbons
Of deep red.

Button reaches –
Touching the sister ribbon
Of faded yellow-green
Wanting what the ribbons have.

Ribbons so entangled.
Enmeshed in the softness
That cloud-like yarn offers
In gratitude.

They hardly notice
Button’s earnest effort;
Feeling only the weight.
Glass button, a sharp contrast.

Button, oh ill shaped button
Not a square, nor a circle
Who made you?

How is it you have landed here?

I’ve changed my patio garden this year, moved things around, leaving space where once stood many plants huddled together. I will have to rethink things when the warmer, sunnier days come. One giant umbrella simply will not do if the plants are to remain in their new positions. All this is what I call problems I like to have.

Here is a dress that was once only a top. An example of another problem that I liked having. Solved!Image
