Holding On And Letting Go - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Collecting thoughts and putting them in storage
Like summer clothes after balmy breezes have ceased
Like wrapping long stemmed glass in paper tissue
And placing them in seclusion after a holiday feast

Releasing a grip that is reluctant to set free…
The fragrances and flavors of saturated memories
Fill empty spaces with warmth… gone out of reach
Isolated and confined to a vault of yesterdays
