Garbage Bin (1 Viewer)


Senior Member
sitting by the curb
rusty, old, and ugly
an oil tank
keeping our trash
out of view
in need of a redo
now in the garage
painted white
not once but twice
what a beautiful sight!

Perhaps an orange peace sign
Now in Canada
This is the color
the families of
aboriginal children missing
found in makeshift graveyards
from schools they were force to attend

as I walk into his masterpiece
waiting to see what I expected
I found instead
every color
lines and circles
made its way to his creation
orange forgotten
still on the shelf
all by itself

A work of art
Several cans in hand
Lost in the moment

The bin makes its way back
The red peace sign noticeable
Adored by many
as vehicles stop to take pictures
of your makeover
