Leave Your Cares

In case you've been wondering why I haven't posted anything in the last 8 weeks it's because I'm preoccupied with a new hobby called sewing. I have found that I really enjoy creating something from scraps of material. I'm even taking a sewing course. Writing has taken a back seat unfortunately, but, maybe I needed a vacation from it. Hopefully writing this short poem will encourage me to give it another go.

Don't forget me when I'm gone
I'll not be far away.
I've simply found another song
To occupy my day.

For as shadows rise and fall
My heart will never wane.
And someday I'll return
To write a poem again.

For now the scent of cloth,
Of aprons, purses, bears,
Takes me to another place,
Where I can leave my cares.
