Cherished Collection (tanka)*

grooved black vinyl disc~

spinning circular movement~

diamond tip travels~

elicits musical sounds~

long gone tunes ‘n songs of past


*Note: I’ve always been eclectic in my musical tastes. I was never a mad fan of anyone band or artist, although I did have favorites. I’ve given some links to a few of the original vinyl albums I have. I’ve been dragging these around for years. If you ever had a collection of these you know how heavy they are. I hope you enjoy them.

PS My posts will be limited as I broke a finger and it takes forever to peck with one finger.

🌎 ✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

    1. I could have selected more, lol but didn’t want to overdo it. Thank you, it’s a bummer but you know accidents happen. Have a great holiday weekend. Oops I don’t even know if you live in the states. 😁

      1. I know what you mean. It’s always, just one more, okay, one more.
        I understand completely. I’ve seen a few injuries first hand. Comes with my line of work.
        No holiday weekend here. What holiday is it?

      2. It is Memorial Day (day to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country). Honoring the soldiers who lost their lives in war.

  1. I’m loving this poem of yours….how beautiful & how deep when I read it from another perspective.
    I miss vinyl, my father used to have a huge collection back then. That scratchy sound before the music starts….the rotating disc….the raw sound….
    Hope you’re doing fine, Blue….due to the broken finger….

    1. Mine aren’t scratchy as I’ve never mishandled them. However I remember my parents having old deca records which were scratchy sounding (my understanding is that records were first made from shellac). Thank you for commenting. The finger will heal, just smarts and awkward trying to do some things. Hope you’re doing well too. 😊🦋🙏🏼

      1. That’s quite sick abt your vinyl discs…that they play so slick…the finger will surely heal…keep visualizing it 💙
        I’m doing alright…thx…feel old as I can’t handle the whole day without a power nap…I burn quite a lot mental / physical energy due to brain hemorrhage (& epilepsy) whenever I’m quite active…but I’m able to find calmness 🙏💙

    1. Thanks for reading and commenting. I wanted to share more of the albums I have but that would be too much. Finger will heal in about six weeks I’d say 😁 thanks.

  2. Oh, no! I’m sorry to hear about your finger and wish you a speedy recovery! I love your selection of music and find it amazing you have these on vinyl! My taste in music is eclectic, as well, however, my favorite genre is classic rock. I love the videos and thank you for sharing them! And thank you so much for joining in!
