Labor Day

Gazing over the water

Enjoying the beauty of the moment

the stillness of the water

cloud formations  touching the heavens

Moving in and out from being present

in the beauty

and being pulled inside to the

mundane- the tasks of daily living

and the impact of 26 years of 


Letting go- box by box

bag by bag

treasures that can be used

 and items that can be discarded- their usefulness past prime

paintings from the past tucked away on a tall shelf 

now mildewed with time- released into the pile of trash

Where did the time go?

How did I get to this point in my life?

Accumulation for years now saying I have more than enough

it's time to let go!
