Attic Cleaning

Attic Cleaning

A Poem by C.L. Wilson
"

Metaphor for how we must let go of things from our past that hold us back.

"

Dust flies

Time flies

 

I unpack

Old knickknacks

And old things

Sealed away up here

 

Things come

Things crumble

 

Teddy bear

Starts to tear

And old toys

Fall apart in my hands

 

I separate

I organize

 

One stack

Won’t be back

To stay here

And take up space

 

Life flows

Life ends

 

And so must some memories

There is a sadness felt in the sorting here...
Very atmospheric
