Shiny Things – Theme Friday

Human beings love shiny things
Witness hosannas to the sun, stars and moon

Like a divining rod to lightning, our shiny things draw us near…

Christmas lights
Pennies in parking lots
Cherry colored Corvettes

My shiny things…
earrings that dangle
smiles that sparkle
eyes that twinkle
a sun-kissed sea in aquamarine refractory
stainless steel pots begging to bake, broil and broast
glinting snow under artic moons
rosy cheeks on giggly children
silver spoons on cool white linens
The light that is born from within and warms a room

Yes, we love our shiny things because they cast out the shadows that haunt us.
