Little Boxes

Inside myself
Tiny puzzle pieces
Interlocking
Disassembled
In their box

Inside myself
A looking glass
Mirror images
Razor sharp and cutting
Distorted

Inside myself
A box of stars
I’m afraid to open
Just wishes
On days gone by

Inside myself
Odds and ends
Little parts
To keep and hold
Me together

About Suzanne Parlee

I have been writing poetry since I was a little girl. Now an adult I find such comfort in words, in books, and the written word in general. I am from New Brunswick, Canada, a province surrounded by The Bay Of Fundy, and The Saint John River, only one hour's drive from the Maine/USA border. Beautiful province!

    My own guess is that “Little Boxes” being posted alongside “Moon Shine” and “Monchrome Morning” appears,to the casual reader such as myself,to possibly capture a broader mood in which these three poems were conceived.They certainly convey the sense of being connected temperamentally. And for the Poet,consciously or not,and certainly for the Reader that’s always a “bonus”.

    I find in this poem a fine expression,nay outpourings,of random feelings that overtake all of us at one point or the other-but hardly do we put it down, ever so elegantly !
