Mystery Drawer
by Jane Thissen 
eccentricity loved by 
quirky me
sometimes creates confusion
lovely moments of appreciation
for questions
with no answers
which I file in 
my mystery drawer
 
my keeper of the best
walkers of light
which touched me then
and touch me now
who are they
never changing
in their ability to transform
that is the essence
of growth
 
you are gently wrapped
in fine golden tissue
placed with tenderness
in that cache of memory
ongoing love
for people once and always
part of me
individuals who helped me
become 
what I strive for daily
unique in tolerance
acceptance
and appreciation
for the person you are
whoever that is
I’m not sure
thus your treasured nest
in my mystery drawer
