Collection of Collections

January 17

I have a collection of collections.

Does that mean I’m a collector?

Maybe a hoarder or just sentimental?

Waffles is not happy with the books

Edie loves the yarn and ribbons

Vinny snuggles in the handmade quilts

while Chiquita prefers laundry fresh out of the dryer

Porcelain cats and handblow glass

Children’s art and pictures at the park

Centuries of memories locked in the china cabinet

Tiny what-nots on display from some long forgotten travels

All the things that make a life

collected through the decades

packed in boxes brown with age

silently waiting for the next generation.

Family heirlooms or just stuff?

 

Today’s prompt for Just Jot It January is ” collection”.

Fabulous at 50 living and writing in Appalachia
