Dirty Dishes – Poetry

She has a plan
and good intentions,
but she stands at the sink
and washes the dishes.

Dirty water
won’t stop draining
and all she thinks
is of poetry writing.

She’s slowly falling apart.

She thinks of poetry.
A bubble she blows.
She refills the sink
and listens to Crows.

Where did i go?
Who am i now?
Am i exactly the same,
and if so, how?

The dishes are done,
and dinner is fine.
My insides turned out
what did i find?

I’m slowly falling apart.

Seize It: A #30in30 Poem

Seize the day poem

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

People that you knew

a long time in the past,

they fade away so casually.

You knew it wouldn’t last.

 

All those memories you made

are tucked away and filed.

All those games that were so fun –

spinning, climbing, being wild –

 

will have to wait another day,

a week, a month, a year.

For now you have to clean the tub,

fold the laundry, your deadline’s near.

 

Being grown-up ain’t that fun.

The day is hard; get up and run.

The time, it passes like draining water.

Wash the dishes, hug your daughter.

 

Take a breath.

Watch the stars.

Kiss your lover.

This day is ours.
