An Unsent Thank You Note / Older

An Unsent Thank You Note

It has been a great year.
The sun shines through storms.
The flowers and plants stand firm
in the wind under the tree.
I don't know how you do
all these, but thanks for being
the sun with your smile, the tree
with your strength.


We grow
worn, all the time

layer upon layer
pains of regrets

gather, dust-bite
on mind's shelves

grained beautiful,
timeless like antique.

Some days,
we house keep,

remove pains.
Some days,

they return
as if new,

as what they were,
only older.
