Egg Carton

The egg carton is light gray, with flecks of colors as it's made from recycled paper. One corner of the lid is torn, but just a little.

Three objects lay within.

The first is a faded photograph; of two little girls in pink dresses,  holding  melting ice-creams on an warm spring day. Their grandfather took that photo .

The second is a silver ring; the ring a  young teacher lost when caring for her spring flowers. The flowers were roses.    

The third is an empty huming-bird nest;  built one spring to raise a family. A golden bit of hair is woven into it.  

I close the carton, and set it back down.

The End
