To simplify is not a chore
but hard to fathom:  Less is more.
The trinkets in my bulging chest
revealed a fear of want expressed
in acquisitions to abhor.

An angel held my feet before
the fire and gently barred the door
of avarice at my behest
to simplify.

Uncluttered closet, empty drawer—
you’re all I need for home decor.
My overburdened mind was stressed,
but I have been supremely blessed
with help accomplishing the chore
to simplify.
