It is a strange collection

of useful clutter

the clutch of pens

and one bold marker

the heating pads

and bolsters

as rest becomes an arrangement

and a formal posture

calendars take many forms

wall, agenda, and daily lists

reminders scattered

through every room

so busy-ness does not equal forgetfulness

middle age is a strange collection

of clutter and joy

as years settle in to comfort – Caroline A. Slee
