I send Two Sunsets —
Day and I — in competition ran —
I finished Two — and several Stars —
While He — was making One —

His own was ampler — but as I
Was saying to a friend —
Mine — is the more convenient
To Carry in the Hand —

    what a strange, yet simple and beautiful concept.
    i guess she is talking of a painting she has done here in competition with the Almighty’s work of art.
