The Trade

Discarded object -
lost and forgotten treasure,
destined for trash can.

Tracey, I know, this is a hard one to comment on.

The Fool said...

Yeah, Nomad...I have felt like this Haiku. Have a great Tuesday.

Carla said...

Fool, I think we've all been there at some point. Such is life. Have a great day.

Recycle?

Fede said...

ok today you are criptic...and I am good with it!
I periodically throw away old stuff, it makes me feel better.I feel light and ready to move on. But I like to visit these shops for what you can find ...
Ok, time to finish my lunch! I love Greek food.
good night and good luck!

Carla said...

Randy, Yes, in some cases with some things recycling works.

Fede, It's called Haiku and yes, often it is a little cryptic with layers of meaning. And yes, sometimes we have to get rid of the old to make room for the new.

Carrie said...

Hmm... thats poignant.. and a lovely picture.

We have a dog like that. Still with us but Sirdar keeps threatening.

VE said...

Wait a minute; what if it's a trash can that is the object you're trying to discard?

Carla said...

Hi Carrie, Thanks. Yes, one could go in a few different directions with this one.

Dawn, That's funny...as long as he doesn't really get rid of the dog...that would be horribly tragic.

Carla said...

VE, I haven't figured that one out yet...kind of hard to throw a trash can in the can. Let me know if you come up with a solution.

everything has its time and place.

enjoy the full moon eclipse

Carla said...

Pinks, Yes, but some things should always be cherished. And yes, I most certainly will.

Mark said...

What is so important to us one day often loses it's appeal and luster to end up on the rubbish heap of our discarded life.

Carla said...

Mark, So very true. It's really too bad we don't take more care.

VE said...

My solution is to find that family with too many siblings. They are always in the need of more garbage space. On garbage day, I leave my trash can with them. Then they have an extra can and they won't have to sneak around the neighborhood putting their overflow trash in somebody's can that isn't full.

Fede said...

Can we just have more of it?
Good night and good luck.

Carla said...

VE, Excellent solution. I don't think I could have come up with a better one myself.

Fede, Poems? Or objects destined for trashcans?
