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.
