I am packing my suitcase
with more than I need,
and less than I know.
It is hard dressing for tomorrow
when today is still tied to my shoelaces.
Weather reports attempt
to fortune tell how many
raindrops will drown concrete.
It could be a downpour of drizzles.
I am planning for cold, but the sun
could deny winter’s freeze and
have me sweating in sweaters.
I am a pessimistic optimist,
thinking the worst while
planning for the best.
Everything fits when the zipper zips.
My suitcase is packed with more
than I need and less than I know.
