Poked bunches painted—Ouch!
To stick my heart

Friday, November 14, 2014. I wrote the haiku“Flower Pins to My Heart” just this evening after a crazy-busy week filled with all those crazy-working-mommy tasks. I found myself gazing at this shadow box. Hand-made by a dear friend, it is filled with enameled flower pins (or brooches as some ladies might say).
When I look at this bunch of lacquered metal flowers, I remember the many times that we spent combing sidewalk sales and thrift shops in San Francisco looking for some such funky find.
I followed a writing prompt from Daily Prompt, “By Hand”: “What’s the best present you’ve ever received that was handmade by the giver, not store-bought? Tell us what made it so special.”
