April showers bring May flowers.
I could write about flowers, but I’m not.
April is national poetry writing month.
I could write about poetry or share some poems, but I’m not.
And the rain is back.
I could write about rain or the weather, but I’m not.
I’m moving on. It’s April and it’s time to focus on graduation presents.
Presents that will need to be sent in advance.
Presents that will take time to design, construct, and even admire.
One present in particular . . .
99 blocks, similar in color to this,
but not identical.
99 blocks, laid out in some randomness,
but not without care to avoid repetitions.
99 blocks, for a high school graduation gift,
but not able to attend.
99 blocks, YIKES!
Back to work on a gift for the 12th and final HS “grand” graduation!!
What graduations will you celebrate? What are some standard gifts? How will you prepare for graduation gift-giving?
