A curated life

A curated life

A curated life
A museum quality life
where we hold onto
things that give us
beauty, pleasure and function
and cast off the
things and people and beliefs
that do not nourish us

Cast off
pinchy shoes,
negative nellies,
broken tools,
dirty carpet,
harsh light bulbs,
unsafe practices,
belittling thoughts,
unresearched judgements,
and processed foods

Keep nature
the green and growing,
strong and blowing,
singing birds
and shade trees

Keep art our muse
poems and pictures,
happy music,
sensuous sculptures,
symbolic wreaths
and calming decor

Keep clothes
of color and soft fabric
with flowing lines
and classic style,
stretch and comfort,
warmth and breathability

Keep function
The tea mug,
the toaster,
broom and rake,
things for cleaning
and things for transport

Especially keep loved ones
who love us back
with wide open arms,
warm kisses,
interested ears,
and thoughtful hearts

A curated life
is a chosen life
culled for happiness,
love, and uncluttered peace
