Packing

I’ve entrusted my life into cardboard

and granted

each memory

to strangers’ hands.

Lined each box

with walls of the memories

strong enough

to stand the test of time.

I’ve traced my heartbeat

across packing tape seals

and closed up my world

in anticipation

of a new home.

I have been through all of myself

to find the treasures

that I need to keep.


This Friday I will be moving to a new home, so this inspiration call seemed particularly appropriate for this week. As always, feel free to jot down any thought and comments below! I do like to know I’m not waffling on to myself.
