Daily Haibun, August 17th – Paper Trails

I’ve spent more time then I want to admit sorting through paper today. Old bills. Advertisements. Notes from school and daycare. Empty envelopes. Newspapers and magazines. Stacks of children’s drawings.

Once I start I can’t quit until every drawer and heaps on desks are reduced to a minimum.

After a while I started to think about what paper’s we leave behind. And for some reason found myself content that together with old tax returns and employment deals. I will leave a whole bunch of notebooks with poetry and stories. And some books that actually have my writing in print.

Old papers tumbling

Spinning into new stories

As leaves in autumn
