A reward

I promised myself a reward when Leaf finally made it into form.

I wasn’t sure what that reward might be, but I figured I’d know it when I saw it.

Well, I saw it a couple of times

and both of those times I hesitated

always because of the money

so the 3 heart-stirringly simple red posies were gone by the time I figured out that yes, indeed, I was worth it

so was the moody raven in a mackinaw and cowboy boots that tickled my melancholy bone

and then, one day, I spied a painting perched on a ledge in Elsie’s studio

That day, I did not hesitate.

Elsie calls it 1,2,3 Sing!

I call it a perfect reward for a job well done 

and a perfect reflection of my turtle dream
