Cabinet of Curiosities

ff76df2297dfacf05d029d5abb4988d3Scrolls of ancient sagas

Pictures of strange faces

Folios of collected letters

Sealed in the misty wonders

of the antemundane treasures

awoke her delight in the senses

in phantasmagorical displays

of the cabinet of curiosities.

Author’s Note: Looking at our family album suddenly brought me back to the time when my father opened an old cabinet in his library where the interesting artifacts from our ancestors were kept and explained to me what they were; At the tender age of childhood, it was a sight to behold in awes and wows engraved in my memory shrine. For it was truly a Cabinet of Curiosities.
