There's a fine line between a packrat and a serious family historian.
As I climb to my attic place,
What comes to mind is
"Free up space".
What's stored up there
Is beyond compare.
I'm ready to wrestle dusty air.
Family this, school that
unpacking loads of labeled loot-
Am I just a packrat?
Decluttered, feeling free-
boxes ready for someone's
My attic is a hidden room of clutter but thanks to dedicated time,
I have lessened my load of days-gone-by treasures.
What's in your attic?
Each year since March 2015, I have engaged in Two Writing Teacher's Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge. Slicing allows me to ponder life, literacy, and learning, capturing small moments poetically through writing, photography, and digital art. Welcome to Day 17 of 31 days of writing with Two Writing Teachers.
