In Other Words, secret treasure…


The kids went treasure hunting today.

The paddock next door was once a dumping ground.

They returned with a bucket full of bits of China, a plastic peg and what they called secret treasure.

It was a damaged plaster of Paris dog ornament.

They treasured it for many years because they imaged it was once loved by kids like them.

    So sweet. Kids do love things which to grown up look like throw aways .

    Those kids sound like my grandfather, always nosing through other people’s cast-offs to see what was useful. That’s not disparaging, he made some pretty cool things from his found objects. Maybe the kids in your story will do the same. 🙂

  3. A charming tale Michael.

    Secret treasures were always wonders to find. If we are lucky and young at heart we never stop looking for those wonders. Thanks for sharing.
