Life’s Stuff

We have so much stuff and stuff to put stuff in: closets, bureaus, draws, chests, boxes, jars …

Where do we put life’s stuff?
Where’s the container for smiles?
Where do we file longing?
Are there jars to preserve happiness?
Can respect be bottled?
What vault can hold love?

Life’s stuff can’t be stored. They can only be lived.
Too much stuff can get in the way of living.
There’s never too much of life,
only too little living.


“When you plant nature’s beauty in your heart, it grows into smiles.”
Dartwill Aquila

    happiness can be stored in a smile
    respect in behavior
    longing in eyes
    and all our life’s stuff is stored in generations
    life continues
