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
