The Moving Sale
by Daphne Ellen Rankin

There is a "Moving Sale".
Sorting and sifting through the treasures,
And junk collected over the years,
Looking at each one,
Remembering the memories it has brought.

There is a "Moving Sale".
Some things are worth keeping,
Some things are broken beyond repair.
It started with a crack, or a chip,
Continuing to get bigger,
With no one taking the time to mend it.

There is a "Moving Sale".
Someone will overlook the flaws
Of the discarded treasure,
And see only the beauty of what remains.
Take it home, and cherish it.

There is a  "Moving Sale".
Each of us moves on with our lives,
Bringing with us the memories
Of our broken discards,
Hoping with each new aquisition,
That this will be the last "Moving Sale".
