Day 6 and Sunday Scribblings


My mom bought an old
commode at an auction
many years ago.

She spent hours sanding
and refinishing it
to a warm honey glow.

Today it holds a tiny city
of photographs: an equestrian,
a waitress, a pilot, a manager,
two moms, and a pickle-eater.

These are the grands
and the great, the skyline
of the future.

What a wonderful photo! I clicked to enlarge it so that I could see the great and the grands arrayed across its top. And with that description of them, her tiny city is truly the skyline of the future!
