ALL THE THINGS I MANAGED TO SAVE FROM
AT THE MORRO BAY CITYWIDE YARD SALE
AND JUNK FEST ... !
An abondoned shoebox of forlorn miniatures,
SAVED for a rainy day of creative speculation
and little daydreams.
Discarded charm, SAVED to pillow weary heads
and secret nighttime readers.
Price tags still attached.
A clear shot of the Guerlain bottle ... almost six inches tall!
SAVED for the colour of its sky blue stopper and tarnished label.
An old Edwardian candy box and French perfume bottle,
SAVED for the beauty of it all.
Two lovely, tarnished silver ladies, SAVED for Christmas next,
and everyday before and thereafter.
A sweet Saint, dressed in satin lustre and sparkling stars,
SAVED from the hands of someone who should
never have let it go!
Two beautiful old French books ... dated 1718 and 1774
SAVED from a life of dust and mold and jaded eyes!
A ruched 1940's bedjacket,
SAVED for a lifetime of complementing
a favourite pair of old, tattered, faded Levis.
