laden : carrying a load or burden
I remember when
we first came here The laden
van crammed full Now those
possessions long since worn out
and done Where have the years gone?
tanka 428 : 5/10/23
gainsay : to declare to be untrue or invalid
Her words were poison
No one’s left to gainsay it
They’re all dead and gone
haiku 1061 : 12/20/22
wistful : musingly sad : PENSIVE
I thought I would feel
wistful? nostalgic? Instead –
the clock chimes. I go.
haiku 1097 : 4/21/23

The first and last poems seem like they would work well for your recent life change in moving house.
Yes, in fact, they were written during the moving process. A life transition like this stirs up so many emotions. Sometimes opposite ones at the same time.
I have felt the same way as you describe in the third poem; you said so well!
Moving has brought up all kinds of emotions and many that I didn’t expect, or else some were missing that I did expect.
