“The purpose – where I start –  is the idea of use. It is not recycling, it’s reuse.”  Issey Miyake

Jumbled Life

I went to the local op shop
to glimpse the passing of my life
in a multitude of styles and colours,
unboxed memories in
this museum of moments,
a house of bargains,
all recycled love
wondering where to home,
I took nothing tangible
but I left with joy
and the stirrings
of my childhood.

  5. I love being immersed in joyful memories, and old styles sure do that. Beautiful poem. Thanks for taking me with you on your shopping trip. One thing I’m glad I don’t have anymore is my platform shoes. Ha! =) Did you have any unfortunate fashion choices? ♥.

  6. LoL! I remember some of the shops here. Fashion last seen in old catalogues. Rurality has its own fashion. But leaving with joy is the best ever. Michael
