collecting minutes

I collect them.

The great and unusual ones I gently place each in a mason jar. On occasion, I’ll toss in a twig, a few glass marbles, and just for luck, a tarnished Indian head penny. Always making sure they can breathe, I carefully puncture five random holes in the lid with a rusty nail and an old wooden handled hammer. Not to large, but not small either.

I’m careful to protect them, because if they die, they may never be mine again.

I collect them.
