I’m a poet with a particular point of view. In these next blog posts I’ll post poems on different subjects from my point of view. Each poem is an expression, through me, of inspiration or Spirit or emotion. What you see in this light is what you bring to the poem.
What is it about staying organized? It’s a noble pursuit, so they say. It’s so hard to get and stay organized. A poem can be about anything, anything at all, or even nothing at all. This is my poem about organization.
If I was truly organized
I’d know where everything was
every last paper
every last book.
I’d pay my bills on time,
find the keys
and my favorite lipstick.
But bills pile high on the dresser
my desk has layers to excavate
can’t find my slippers.
You tell me organizing is easy.
In a minute I’ll lose my pen,
then this poem will be over.
