a lucky find

i used to pick up so many things on the way home from school

my pockets were always full with;

pebbles, shells, screws, twigs, coins, nuts, keys, bits of glass...

sometimes flowers and insects (dead ones), too

odds and ends, indeed

when i got home, i didn't remember what i got in my pocket

until i changed my clothes at night 

set all my loot on the desk and examined

only extremely precious articles went into my drawer

yes, my treasure!

i still love loitering on the way to a destination

to make a find on the road

it's always there, only if you search

but i don't use my pocket anymore

the brain hold all my meagre treasures

ten ten

ten ten is an evolving art experiment with its roots in the Japanese folk tradition
