Winnie’s Spring Cleaning

Winnie realized

She had been sitting for too long

Her hands clenched

Her mouth held firm shut

And so she opened them

Palms held up to the ceiling

Followed by a loud thundering scream

The next day

Winnie sat

As sparkling clear

As her empty crystal vase

She waited for what would come

And it came fast

As full and as fragrant

As a dozen new blooming roses.
