All These Things

After the rain.

A change in seasons.

A change in thinking. It started last week. A friend said, in comments, that my mother raised a good son. I said thank you. But, but, but…

You know how that goes. And, how it still goes.

It seems like everything is a trigger. A song. A smell. A book. A movie. A picture.

You know.

It’s interesting. A lot of stuff has been coming out of closets. Sort of a spring cleaning. There are boxes along a couple of walls.

What a great metaphor.

Boxes along the walls. All these things.

The pictures. Clouds are fun to photograph. I think you just need some kind of a subject in the foreground. That’s what I tried to do in both pictures. Oh… the bottom picture was made through my car’s windshield.

  1. There’s something slightly melancholy about the pictures, and the musing. In a contemplative way. Your words make several haiku (some in the 5-7-5 we learned in junior high which some haiku snobs now disdain, and some not).

    As in:

    a change in thinking
    everything is a trigger
    you know how that goes

    or:

    it started last week:
    “your mother raised a good son” –
    “thank you, but, but, but…”

    or even:

    spring cleaning
    boxes along the walls
    all these things

    • Yes. It is. This particular holiday generally sends me on a mental and emotional journey through the past. We didn’t study haiku at all, so I barely understand it. On the other hand, we did study Latin, which we all barely understood. 🙂 I went to a Catholic school so what can I say? I see my kind of writing — when I do it — as sort of a song lyric.
