I have a collection of collections.
Does that mean I’m a collector?
Maybe a hoarder or just sentimental?
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”.
