Cleaning in Spring

Post by mland2000 » 07 Jun 2018, 20:31

Cleaning in Spring Melissa

Fragments of another life
Drifting toward oblivion
Reduced to an untidy heap
Fluttering to the ground
A shirt, a prom dress, a christening outfit
Reminders of a life well spent
Gossamer lace, booties
Books for another era
No longer filling my days.
Some insights are fresh
With intermittent sadness
Yet glimmers of joy emerge.
The shedding continues
While lightness prevails.

I really enjoy the imagery in this poem and the hidden meanings of clearing away the clutter of life until 'lightness prevails.' Good work!
