Yesterday’s Weight

 

She handles it

carefully

gently

The feather down

and gossamer layers

cradle it

She’s unpacked

Yesterday

The weight

almost comforting

As it settles

on her shoulders

*My upcoming move has made me reflect upon what we drag with us through life.  The gloom of yesterday, often self-inflicted upon us today.
