Boxed Revelation

Insignificant enough
to go missing –
a single box,
stored away,
one, maybe two,
moves ago –
the absence
of its contents
now called into question.
Seems that redundancy
is not permanent –
what was once inconsequential
now has purpose –
gives me renewed hope.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. All these moving around can bring about these nagging questions of where they are. And time gives us new “eyes” of what is really important now versus the past. I hope you find it.

  2. “one, maybe two,
    moves ago”

    This is the crux of it, for reader-Me. A life in transition, perhaps finally settling in, and seeking what’s been missing. Isn’t it funny how we can own “stuff,” and forget about it for so long?
