Week 37 – Catalog #1

The Gift

The big day was coming, and I tirelessly searched for the right gift.

I searched the department stores.

I searched the hardware stores.

I searched the jewelry stores.

I searched the pop-up kiosks.

I searched the bookstores.

I searched the beauty stores and bath stores.

I looked in pet stores and farm co-ops.

I looked in recreational stores.

I looked in restaurants.

I scoured catalogs, and online specialty sites.

I looked in wine shops and craft beer stores.

And in the end,

I simply pulled out a pen and a sheet of paper.

I drew a heart, then ten.

I dipped my pen into the inkwell of my heart.

And the words of pure love ran across the page.
