A poem for you all

  1. I got this great gift book, "Handbags-The Power of the Purse" by Anna Johnson-great pics, interesting history of handbags and there was the great poem at the beginning by David Roby and I thought all of my LV friends would like it!

    I Have a Handle on the Situation

    I have a handle on the situation.
    I have a handle on my space and contents.
    My vacant hollow.
    Or the items of which I house a dozen odds and ends.
    I always know what I posess or what may be un-there or missing.
    To study my physiognomy, one might think not much or lacking.
    But closer on inspection, I am near divine and worthy of great travels.
    A true companion of love and comfort, recognition, the familiar.
    I have been held in such a clutch and such a love storm
    by my mistress and her values.
    She takes my aboard a thousand footsteps, always holding on and never once ignoring.
    Mostly I am there to steady, to balance her or witness.
    She sometimes shuffles through my soul in search of needy things,
    like painted sticks and looking glasses of which I keep most dear.
    She searches inward and there she looks inside my sacred space.
    Full of painted stick and looking glasses,
    I am my lady's handbag.
