Let go

Pieces and bits of a memory

Dusty boxes emptied of treasures

Gathered along the way in this life

A journey of this and that

For sale.

Tables filled with things,

Just some of a life held

Letting go to a new home

Stickered with thought

What worth?

Childhood toys and a book or a hundred

Shared now with the cars

If I build it they will come

Sign says today

Come receive.

Emptied lofts of all but a few

Hanging cobwebs disturbed

As light peers through cracks

Un encumbered by things

That are set free

To move about

Somewhere else

Just not here


Thoughts as I unbox years of “things” to downsize before moving. Freedom and letting go feels kind of good in a bittersweet way.
