Poetry Thursday: Useful

bloggy_julie_new-glaze_3314394790_6c6028ef8b_o.jpg When I had few things I collected them to fill the spaces that felt scary and fix me in space so I would not float away

Now I have things enough to know you collect nothing but are yourself the collection

All the thoughts you've thought and the feelings you've felt and the stories you've shared make you your own curio cabinet, collection, and all.

Much more fulfilling than things you can hold much less dusting than things you acquire

What is truly useful is what you carry in your head and your heart on the way home

What is truly extraordinary is the home you find in empty space.
