get your poem on #79: Wordlicious!

June 19, 2009

Gettin’ the Poetic Schwerve on again this week.  Sorry it’s late.

Bazaar Possibilites

There were possibilities
For sale at the annual bazaar
Memories and treasures
and junk and a glass onion
with a teeny tiny crack on the
bottom and a silver plated
trumpet, except where it was worn.

Memories no longer wanted
Tethers undone and set free
Bric-a in a search for -brac
clutter searching for space to breathe.

Misty memories of Christmas past
Fading as the ornaments look out
of place in July.  Gifts no longer
wanted or needed.  Moribund
reminders of times best forgotten.

And oh, Look!  There are Drapes
to be had! Fields of Burgundy to
Cover the windows, with vellumish
Shears to go with them.

I want to devour the pile of moldy
Books, but content myself with three
of the many possibilities for pennies
on the past at the annual bazaar.

    we don’t have a used-item bazaar here. wish we have some.

      bazaar = garage sale = tag sale = rummage sale

      It would be nice if there were more of them all over. So much stuff gets tossed out.

      And thanks for coming around these parts, Sir!
