Where the Cleaner Never Passes Through the Door

Where the Cleaner Never Passes Through the Door

Locked safely in a corner of my mind
Where the cleaner never passes through the door
A room I enter now and then to find
A thought that will, my innocence restore

Not a cobweb or a speck of dust
No disorder where the records lay
All appears as though I just
Closed that little door the other day

I take my time to browse the shelves
As they from slumber slowly wake
Then each in turn present themselves
In always pleasing forms they take

In never ending streams they pour
Onward to the party held
To celebrate they came before
That age of innocence was felled

Dancing still as they did then          
Faultless in their ignorance
Laughing as they will again
Till I have run the full distance

    A stunning write from a peaceful and orderly mind. No peace to be found in mine, what with my voices all demanding stage (lol). I've set aside a goodly chunk of my weekend to go through your writes. What I've seen thus far greatly appeals. Have a good weekend, my friend, and BE GOOD. Licia :-)

    I don't know about orderly Licia and peaceful, well, if only lol. I keep peeping at odd ones of yours now and again. Do you realise I now have more poems posted than you? That should never be.

    I'm always amazed how we adapt to the changes we face in life, particularly from child to adult. Thank you for the thoughtful comment Karen.

    you know, this is the kind of poetry I like, that is symbolic. It's the type I enjoy writing myself and I think you do a good job with it in this and other poems as well. Keep it up!
