TITLE: Flower of Paradise
WORD COUNT: 148 Words
She came often to this little garden she called her slice of paradise; flourishing with bright colors and life.
Sometimes she brought her easel and replicated Mother Nature’s serenity. Other times, she came with her hose and lovingly tended to us. On those good days, she was always happy as she mothered us and painted.
There were also dark, frightening days. Either she spent excessive amounts of time away or just sat on the ground with thunderstorms looming over her head. On those days she bared her soul to us and we attempted to console her with our perfume.
During one of those days, she struck a deal with Mother Nature to become a flower when she died. And so upon her death bed, Mother Nature gave her a new home among us in her beloved garden where she paints and laughs with us in this unchanging paradise.
