At my age . . .

. . . my to-do-list is
much too mundane to do.
*PT exercises
*Clean out drawers

So I sit, pen in hand
page waiting to be filled,
adorned by words. 
Words like scintillation
fantasia, pomegranate
or perhaps persimmon.

Images, dormant in my mind,
waiting to appear on the page.
Orange sherbet sun
flirting with shapeshifter clouds.
Raucous carousel horses
racing round a blurred world.

Pen over vacuum? Easy choice
to clear the cobwebs from my brain.

    Love that you read my own daily agenda and how mundane it feels to me too! Trouble is… pen in hand will not change a thing , for my gifts in said area are nothing in comparison to yours!

    My choice would be the same. Love it!
