My Red Bucket

My favorite color is red.
I found a plastic red bucket
at the store one day
and made it mine.

I didn't realize at the time.
How that bucket would become such
a functional part of my daily life.

I use it to pick figs and wild berries,
to wash, to carry water for my fountains
and plants. I take it to summer concerts
filled with ice and drinks.

I take it fishing and seashell scavenging.
Its a carry all when I need it

Its the bucket of my childhood
I never had.

My little red bucket
makes me happy,
makes me glad.
