(No, I’m not pregnant!!)
There continues to be many things happening in my life that I am grateful for. One of these is finding a community of writers in real life and here, in the blogosphere. Another is stretching my “writing wings” with the various challenges provided by other blogs.
This poem was inspired by the Pic and a Word Challenge #150 – Gratitude. Welcome back, Patrick! I also incorporated the Tuesday Challenge from Go Dog Go Cafe which was to write a poem where every line begins with the same letter, and no line begins with the same word. Thankfully, these two challenges came together quite nicely. Below is their grateful love child!
Today, my kids are all at school
The laundry calls my name
To-do lists loom across my desk
These errands know no shame.
Through the summer, I had loathed
Those little dirty feet
Tension cramped my shoulders
Tears fell on my sheets
Though now I am alone all day
Thoughts stray from my menial tasks
Treasured moments cross my mind
Thank goodness days go fast
