Land Sailors - Poem by Carolyn Brunelle

Another yard sale going on
At the neighbors. A sea of
Humanity arrives dutifully
To place value
On yesterday’s treasures;

Thinking some priceless
Trinket awaits the keen eye
Of a yard sailor. Sailing,
Sailing over the ocean blue
'I’ll give you a buck or two.'

Like ants they gather,
Engulfing the sweetness
Of rummaging through
Second hand beauty,

While a thousand eyes watch
The count and the sticker price;
Then attempt to bargain for
Their own special price.

    Lovely poem, said just the way it is. We all do it, if only to snatch up that door stop that was thrown out yesterday. Read mine - Last Rung on your Ladder -
