present and present

 yesterday i received 
a belated christmas present
 it is broken and lovely
how marvelous when 
 someone knows you well enough
to give a garage sale present
that is beautiful
and may become something new
indian, painted on glass or agate, i think

another intricate painting
staghorn sumac ghostprint

V-you are so right - folk know us well when they know to give us gifts that have history lingering and have the potential to be used and renewed. B
