Orphaned

Her collection spanned the years:
old photos and cards, well worn
books with dog-eared pages,
an odd assortment of furniture
that no one else wanted.
Perhaps she saw a bit of herself
in each piece rescued—
each looking for love
and a place to call home.

  6. This reminds me of a room in my mother's home--hundreds of photos in standing up frames. Must take a photo. I already wrote a poem about it.

  9. Thanks for coming by. Our family own a thrift store. It is lots of fun to work there. It is full of five generations of history.

  10. Lovely sentiment and image, Ginny. That search for a place to call "home" is universal and you capture it most poetically.
