There’s a Native American saying:
“When deciding what to keep ask, Does it help grow corn?”
There are so many cool things
and comforting ideas
that collect around our houses
and in between our ears.
These icons of identity
crowd each other out
So no one thing sparkles quite as bright.
Even you might lose your luster
Among all the clutter.
I speak for myself.
When I shout
What goes out
Please go visit Becca Givens Curator of Nurturing Thursday.
NaPoWriMo Poetry challenge Suggested Masonry walls. I wrote about what we keep between the walls.
I came upon the photo on Facebook. One way of letting go is passing on.
