In, “Unpacking Pieces Poem,” I sort through the pieces of me. Some as old as time itself, but, every one of them has a significant edge and smoothness.
Through, “Unpacking Pieces Poem,” Each one holds sadness, pain, joy, and blessings. They offer more to others. For me, I’ve stored them too long. But, its when I open the package through open lips, that is when the actual, beautiful storytelling begins. Those seeking answers, those trying to heal. They want to eat it through eyes, nose, mouths, and ears. I didn’t realize for so long that I could help them until I learned to unpack pieces of me through words.
165 pieces of inspirational urban acrostic, cinquain, free verse, haiku, tanka, and much more.
Unpacking Pieces Poem
Before the rise of the sun, I would
Transform my thoughts. Unpacking bits and
pieces of contention and bliss;
stored away between my sleepiness and a
vacuum-packed jar of energy eager to burst.
Fluttering thoughts never touch white paper.
But it was the ink that excited me.
Like a magician, I spelled words from visuals,
cut out synonyms of yesterday with steaming
vapors off the rim of enamel painted coffee cup.
It breathed transformatively.
Just as morning evaporated, I would surrender,
leave my body behind and paint words into something eloquent.
Almost tangible, words touching storms,
words with guidance so kind. I watched them
leave me and enter eyes of others.
I knew now why GOD had spared my life.
In hopes of helping others unpack the pieces.
