One Single Impression: Chaos

Chaos

Chaos reigns they say
they must have seen my garage
not a car in sight
boxes here junk over there
Hodge Podge lives in my garage




A very clean garage we parked in on our Spring 2009 Europe Holiday;
I backed down this long alley to reach it because
it was located in the first floor of our hotel.
It was back in or back out,
no turning around.

your garage looks like our back room!
Thanks for you visit, Jim. I didn't really plan on stopping OSI, and do hope to be back some day. Life has just conspired to lead me elsewhere for a while. But I need to starting coming round again -- thanks for the nudge.

Jim--
Ouch. Chaos is king in my garage also. Gonna get it orderly this spring. Gonna happen.

Thanks for the smile, Jim!

I would never have made it: my brains refuses to operate the backing up drive...
Your garage sounds like my father in law's garage.

chaos in garage is caused by junks, when there is no spare room in the house to hold these extras and out-of-use things at home.

wow...Europe holiday Jim? great!!!

Nice little Tanka! Love that name 'Hodge Podge', it conjours up all sorts of images for me.

btw, I hired an American car in Barcelona and it was too big to fit in the hotel garage.

It's so easy for that clutter to creep up and take over our space, isn't it? Great read!

Jim, have you been in my garage too? Most definitely chaos at work there. Your piece conjures also sorts of images of the clutter (or chaos) I have around.

You have contained the sprawl to your garage. Lucky boy!
We had long distance guests arriving and were forced into declutter frenzy. As much as i love the spartan feel, it won't last long.

what a thought that our garages are a reflection of manifested thoughts...i like the idea of no turninig around...

Nice Jim, It sounds like my garage. My house is 100 years old. There has never been a car in it.

Ha, ha; I loved this! I guess it's the reflection of an interesting life... right? PS thank you for your kind comments on my poem. As Julian of Norwich wrote: All will be well... and I believe she spoke about the veil between this life and the light beyond.

Looks like tricky maneuvering was required. Alas ... my garage is in chaos too, but once upon a time it was clean. I have photos to prove it. I played too ... at Small Reflections this week.
Hugs and blessings,
