Simple Gifts

Dear Asher,

Thank you so much for your thoughtful gift.
How did you know I really wanted
my best white pillowcase
to be confetti-colored?

It was ingenious of you to throw
those crayon pieces into the dryer
to achieve the perfect effect.

It just goes to show that even a little boy with no cash
can make something beautiful for his Ima
if he puts his mind to it.

I don't know how I ever muddled through with solid-colored sheets.
(i.e., before you came along.)

Thank you, my sweet boy.
