Empowerment. Engagement. Authenticity.

The Healing Sonnet

A coat hangs in a closet, stories tucked

in its pockets: mementos of good luck;

Shiny buttons like pennies for thoughts past,

Sleeves long as sighs, wishful that love would last.

Vibrant in the store window it had hung,

passion red, waiting for dreams to be strung

upon its graceful shoulders. And the shape!

Elegant wool, her figure it did drape.

Pull it out! It no longer fits the girl!

The treasure of old memories uncurl

but recede gently. See how styles evolve -

angles, layers! Nostalgia dissolves.

Preserved in photographic anecdotes

The coat is tucked amidst life’s footnotes.
