NaPoWriMo Day 19: Rag Pile

I didn’t want to go straight back to work

After the holiday

So many memories

Still waiting to be processed

After a long day

We sleep

Our brains do

Their filing cabinet thing

What’s working memory

What’s long term


Not mine, not so much

But somethings going on in there

Where’s the weekly version

Where’s the love version

The long break after a week of absorbing

New treasures

Ants and shells and fog

I still need to soak it up

Work it out

Touch every moment

Like gossamer, silk, canvas

All those different textures

Ready to be rubbed across my cheek



I didn’t want to go straight back to work

I want to steep in it

Fall into the rag pile of my


Make a nest
