Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau

this is for Kimberly.


a thing

just calls out your name.

I love old things.
I love flea markets.
I love seeing how creative people
take old things
and give them a new life.

When I saw this old thing
I could not walk away.

The green color 
is delicious.

I smoothed it down 
just a little
and rubbed it down
just a little.

And now it is waiting
in my garage

Waiting for you
to give it new life.

I know you will love it
and will find
a special place
for it to live.

I can't wait 
to see
what you do with it.

When I first started
to clean it up
I started to suspect
that it was in such good shape
that it might not
even be old.

But then I noticed 
that the metal parts
are all rusty.
And the nails 
are square.


But the thing that called out my name

I hope it makes you smile
when you see it.

I love you.

  1. FUN! Green is my favorite color for old things!


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
