This is where
old photo albums awaiting repair,
special fabric I might someday use,
one of a kind sale notebooks,
craft supplies that I will need some time,
torn pillows, blankets with holes, broken clocks,
unfinished craft projects, forgotten purchases, income tax files,
I share this real slice of my life
hoping it will spur me to
enter into this piled-high-sanctum
where the doors barely close,
empty that which others might use,
place unusable items into garbage bags
find, I suspect, forgotten treasures.
Clearing this nemesis,
my "rainy-vacation-day" bucket
and knock off one "to-do-item"
on my summer bucket list!
