Of Winter Flowers

Sometimes little girls (who aren't so little anymore) make things out of paper they've painted, taped, tied with yarn.

Mother and son collect once-a-year songs.

We wrap ourselves into ourselves. We make. And then we give. Then we make again.

The shortest day is a song. The next, a flower. The next, they are grown.
