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
