Holiday Lint

Today I scraped the lint from the dryer that had built up after many loads and mixed in were an assortment of threads, all different colors. I held the flimsy sheet of lint in my hands and lifted it up to the late afternoon sun and let the yellow light illuminate this delicate mash of lint and thread. It made me smile, this was my holiday decoration lighting. I stood there alone for several minutes watching the light burst through this lint.
