not a poem

After two years of lawyers and mediation,
I signed my divorce papers today.
On the trip home, waiting for a giant, all healing exhale,
I instead, had a feeling similar to what I imagined being
isolated on the far edge of the Cobb, Lyme Regis,
during a storm whereas when the waves stopped spewing,
I had to turn around and make my way back to civilization.

In anticipation of moving in the next few months, I know I’ve said that before but it seems inevitable for 2016, I’ve been reapplying Marie Kondo’s method of decluttering my house. It appears that last January when I applied this method to decluttering I didn’t feel the “click”. A year of growth has now found me wanting to discard even more. Her follow-up book, Spark Joy, provides a little more hand holding, which is good because I’m letting go.

I recommend if you’re needing a fresh start to a new year.
