this is mama.

Standard

dropped off the family entries

to the library’s annual lego building contest

there were so many good ones to see

 elaborate, creative, funny, scary, lovely, colorful, detailed

some were quickly assembled

some took many hours and days to create

some made by children, some by adults,

some made by both working together

but it was the one above that really caught my eye

it was beautiful because

it was clearly made by someone

out of pure love

created by ivy, a preschooler

 her piece’s title

written by someone

who knew how to write their letters

simply read:

‘this is mama.’

 it was magnificent.

“every block of stone has a statue inside it

and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”
