Clearing Out the Clutter
I am happily putting away childish things.
Things like the jack-in-the-box
That frightened me so many times,
But that I still kept winding up
To see if it came out the same.
I'm putting away the cat's cradle string that I
Bound myself to so tightly, I could not let go.
Away goes the ball that I had when I so often said,
'It's mine and if you won't play the
Way I want, I will take it and go home.'
Out go the toy traumas in boxes, some of
Which are in the original packing material.
The top that spun me around for years
Has been stopped.
I'm putting away happy toys too. A few of them
I've never wanted to share, but now they are
Too old to play with.
I've saved too many relics from my childhood.
There are fears and hurts and hopes and dreams
That need to be put into their rightful spot.
It's time to do so, maybe passed time.
It's getting late.
Mom and Dad would be so pleased
That I am finally cleaning up the place.
And now the audio of Clearing Out the Clutter
Let Me Recommend… Persephone Books, Ltd.
The Making of a Marchioness and Flush. They are located in London, which is way too bad for those of us not in the area. We could visit their stop! I could go on about their events, sales, and such, but take a look for yourself. Their web site is http://www.persephonebooks.co.uk/ Better than Kindle! Let me know what you think. skp
