NaPoMo Day 3

april 009

(another spring day)
the house is a mess. everything’s a mess.
i don’t even care. another spring day.
up early with the birds. coffee. breakfast.
bath. watching the night gently fade away
through thick vernal fog. streetlight shimmering.
shoulder hurts again. age is such a bitch.
pain is a constant but today i sing.
sorting laundry. dusting. vacuuming. which
chore to do next? as long as they’re all done.
in between tasks.  i jot a few quick lines.
always finishing the poem just begun.
words slipping from my housewife brain’s confines
perhaps producing a reasonable
sonnet.  meanwhile.  dust the end table.
