    She makes them in
    her quiet time
    ...after school

    she makes small
    sculptures of

    dragonflies
    hummingbirds and
    butterflies -

    I call her
    the irredescent artist--
    that sweet daughter of
    mine

    she displays them
    with blooming colors
    to her youthful perfection

    She'd rather be
    creating miniature
    mosaics than playing
    in backyard ponds
    or with bird baths
    or animal feeders

    ...I didn't understand
    quite why...

    instead, creating
    stained glass objects
    was her favorite
    thing to do

    "they are my personal angels",
    she says.

    I saw the likes of
    innocent images
    that are custom designed
    by an intelligent,
    imaginative five-year-old
    mind

    I finally listened
    and began to realize
    a child's fantasy
    encased in glass
    longs to be
    set totally free

    You're absolutely right, and I definitely couldn't agree with you more... my daughter teaches me something new about herself, myself & about life in general each and every day!

    Thanks for the read!
