~ Saturday Flea Market Observation ~

People converge here, some
Selling their wares and tares
Some seeking treasures –
History on the tables
On beds of grass
Scattered cross gravel
Hanging off car door windows

Stories are told here
As “neighbors for a day”
Pass the time
Waiting between the lines –
Current events are a hot topic
As an old man relives, compares
Then and now
I just smile and listen to
Wisdom

Children in towe as little ducklings
Waddell, in wonderment
Glancing this way and that
At the colours, bright colours
Of tables of toys on toys
A “Santa in July” look
Sparkles in their eyes
Squeals of delight resonate
Another satisfied customer
Ching, ching goes the change.
