Lined up
crisp, at attention
row upon row
stack upon stack
eager to be perused.

boxes of minutiae
neatly arranged
records of a life
a story asking to be told.

displayed on the mantle-
glimpses of the yesteryears
and yet the today
being lived
attempting to be encapsulated.

a shrine
a symbol
a lamp lit each day
a brief glimmer
of belief.

a whimsical chair
fashioned out of
a desk
a reading light.

what of it all?

be the medium.
