The paraphernalia of life,
Memories collected,
Emotions rejected,
Gathered over time

The appurtenances of life,
Possessions collected,
At times rejected
Accessories thought necessary

The accouterments of life
Beliefs collected
Sometimes rejected
Always evolving, always growing

The appendages of life
Friends collected
None rejected
Perhaps at times disconnected

The stuff of life
Constantly collected
Intermittently rejected 
Yet cherished wholeheartedly

yes, if we all focused on the things that matter, there would be less matter. Great write, Huberta, and well done in the comp. Viv x

wow, I really like your take on this contest Stuff! Great job here. You are very perceptive, what you said about my prayer poem. My thinking has changed a lot in the past few years. maybe it's my getting old and the experiences I have had. I still believe in God but things i used to believe about him and my church, not quite able to see it the same any more. I mostly pray while driving my car, not at my bedside! (it's the one time I have free time just to be thinking with nothing to distract me)

You did a wonderful job here. I read it several times and it came alive for me, like you painted a picture with words. Emile.

Hi, I liked your poem, especially the last 4 lines. I cherish my stuff, too. And find it difficult to let much go. I have so many books. They are like old friends and I'd like to keep them around a while longer. Since I live along, they are my company. I don't think this poem is for the contest, is it? That "Stuff" poem contest is about environmental waste. I submitted mine, but quickly withdrew once I read the rules. Blessings, Darlene
