Neat and Tidy

spade in garden

I like to think of myself

as tidy

organized

preferring neatness

and order.

But I need only glance

at the weeds sprouting

for all to see

and the closets

hiding decades of

creative, colorful clutter

and

even more hidden

in the recesses

of my busy mind:

the jumble of concerns worries fears

imagined scenarios

plans

hopes dreams wishes longings

and

secrets

for me to know

that

“neat and tidy”

doesn’t quite

sum me up.
