Postcard Dream

Thousands upon thousands 
          of postcards
Images from the past
  with the wrting of long forgotten strangers on them
          The three day show 
Collectors gather from all over the world
    Gather in the hotel
to but and exchange 
    cherished images 
        fromthe past
Collecting movie star photos, sports heroes ,nudes and 
almost everything else
The proceedings seem dull to some 
But a source of fascination to others 
Postcard show -New York City 2012

    I like this poem. I never knew there was any post card shows. I would love to be there. There is something about old post cards that fascinates me. Thanks for sharing. lucy
