with boldness

Processed with VSCOcam with t3 preset

movements of the day
hold me where i need to be
morning tea and freshly baked bread and
schoolwork and housecleaning
birds at the feeders which look nearly empty and
i add this to my list

lunch and dishes and then
violin melodies fill the house,
i sigh contentedly
then pick up the dust rag again
moving as i can
because the list grows longer
or at least never seems to end
as new things are added
like the bird feeders

and i will confess to you
not even in a whisper, but with boldness
that i began the morning with stress in my body
thinking shit, i don’t want to do any of this
but i did it anyway and

now the late afternoon light shines upon my desk and
there is more cleaning to get done but
i stop and welcome this pause
with the (relative) quiet
with the (relative) sunny warmth

and i tell you
boldly
that it was a good day

 

be bold.
sending a little love your way, m
