Antique

I

A room full from wall to wall

of old things

Aged but still in style

looking for a new house

to call home

II

Leather or Suede

on Mahogany legs

style well with any table, like

that one in the window

III

Sitting in the grand surroundings

of the antique shop

furniture sits in their assembled spots

awaiting a customer to buy it

Antique Brass

Amazing condition, given its age

noted for the craftsmanship in every curve

to some, its undervalued

its brighter than tarnished silver and dull gold

quite a talking point to visitors of the house

unless you’re going to sell it though – costs are irrelevant

except when you spot a similar item – and you want it in your house

Collect

#socs #collect

items around a room – connect

common nik naks from different spaces

different things the people collect

treated with the upmost respect

on shelves the nik nak presence graces

as others pass and then inspect

and on the shelf – the humble object

with others are cleaned in their places

should elders eyes turn at them and reject

Challenge 30 – No.29

“Vintage”

#Challenge30 #old #Priceless

Art deco box – “Vintage”

You can put a value on anything

but to most people family heirlooms are priceless

Things handed down belonging to a loved one that’s passed

Items with stories, tales and memories

Character ? certainly Age ? Definately

Its not the age of the item – its the story it tells

even if it can’t speak – it’s timeless quality speaks for it

Hard to see through

Opaque

Opaque

On the whole – its hard to see through glass like this

Perhaps , that’s why, instead of windows – it’s used to produce

Antiques of the future – vases and chargers and such

Quaint – in the way the colours scatter through it

Unlike the light , captured by the spectrum of colour

Enjoyed by everyone who sees it – sat on the mantlepiece
