bits and notes

bits and notes

unpacking –

  sifting through bits and pieces
  discovering pearls
     buried among the socks –
  words and gifts
     some at the last moment,
        salted with tears and hugs.
           more than a painted piece of paper
              or a pebble —
           a memory
        an emotion given voice
     a little bit
        of someone’s heart
           handed to me
              to be remembered.
  Long after the paint fades,
     the paper crumbles,
        the physical object lost in the jumble of lives,
  it is that offering of the heart
     which will remain forever,
        tucked away in a safe place
              deep within my own.
Blessings, to my Incarnate2016 community. My life is forever changed because of your hearts.
