  • Packaging for Perpetuity

    Small box that became branded an icon
    Matched with toys the die is cast
    Unleashing children’s imaginations
    Pocket size triggers of playful drama
    Suffer wear in the palms without safety
    Big smiles light up small faces
    Until joy transformed by vintage
    Adult collectors pursue the pristine
    Prizing the un-prised, unused, unopened
    Rare Models of yesteryear scaled in splendour
    Fires of coveted desire lit by the matchbox
    Small box strikes it big

    I've often marveled that things 'unused', kept pristine in packaging, are so highly valued years later. I realize it's because of rarity...

    That seems a direct contradiction to the idea of spending oneself, preferably in the service of others, so that love, the most priceless of things, shows its worth in the Velveteen rabbit.

    Wonderful versing in this new calendar year Jon! Thanks for sharing.
