Beautiful Vase / February 25, 2019 / Avalynn Bowman
As the minutes slowly passed, the child became gradually aware that he was the only person remaining in the room with the teacher. He put down the crayon and picked up the page. He stared at the vase for a few moments, as if contemplating to bring it up, or to continue working on it. After much deliberation, the child shuffled to the front of the room and placed the page in the hands of his teacher.
The room was filled with the soft sounds of crayons on paper, little feet shuffling on the floor, and an occasional thoughtful humming sound from one of the students. It was a symphony of movement. Small fingers traced outlines with careful precision, and swept back-and-forth to fill the designs with color. Pages would be lifted, turned, and inspected from different angles to perfect flowers, stems, leaves, and the intricate designs that adorned the carefully crafted images.
