all is right where she left it



left behind
put out of mind
all that care put into
selecting
wrapping
making sure not to forget
forgotten
time and empty hands triggered a memory
a rushing back
a reunion, relief
and for a brief moment
belief
that the world is good.

  1. Oh how many times I have run out of the house without my meticulously wrapped gift.

    Well done.

  2. That sense of relief is such a magnificent creature... a person could write a book on it, but not say it half so well as you've rendered it here.

  12. Relief and reunion, relief in reunion...you capture the feeling and posit it well.

    "and for a brief moment
    belief
    that the world is good."

    Could be taken darkly though--is it really? Or do we just deceive ourselves? The questions daily greeting us...Wonderful One Shot.

  14. We have to make those moments ourselves through effort. Even if the effort is just listening to a bird. Wrapping presents works, too. You're beautiful.

  16. I think sometimes we put so much into the wrapping that we forget the present itself. Nice One Shot!
