boxed memories


opened Pandora’s box
folded, refolded letters
yellowed sepia
photographs- few
torn, edges more
tired than crisp
old bank statements
visiting cards of doctors
who now themselves
get doctored
in nursing homes~

how life blossoms
springs, summers
during fall gradually wilts
holding life tenuously
until finally it peters out
in an endless winter
of watch and wait~
foggy memories, uneven
steps and an eternal sunshine
of spotless heart and mind
life coming full circle
as fate returns us to
a childlike state
with a squeaky clean
