Poem #12 NaPoWriMo2013, ’30 Poems in 30 days’

April 13, 2013


on Domestic Bliss:

the household and the chores,

the sweeping and the boiling,

the mundane and myriad

necessary toiling-

upkeep and the grocery bill,

all by list, on schedule,

all in seasonal rotation

without recognition or ovation.

Buy in bulk and save reciepts

wash the dishes, change the sheets

maintain compassion for small things

be thankful for what fortune brings

count blessings lest they fly from thee,

these bowls of soup and cups of tea,

this domestic comfortability.
