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
