Archive Sunday – Yesterday’s Tokens

a box full of memories

like tea leaves of our psyche

from buttons to snapshots

keepsakes of waste not want not

questioning the past

  3. The older generation definitely didn’t waste a thing. My in-laws held onto anything of value. If it was broken, they fixed it until it couldn’t be fixed anymore. You got to admire people like that in our throw-away society today. Nice poem!
