The Worrier


sweeping, dusting, moping
fluffing pillows, folding blankets,
laundry washed, cooking and baking,
So much to do.

drafting and amending
memos and meetings
appointments and schedules
So much to do.

chores at home
work at the office
errands to complete
Where is contentment?

time, a day,
twenty-four hours
one thousand four hundred and forty minutes
Not more. Not less. Never enough.

writing and editing
stories, poems, photography and sketches
make time, this counts
My bubble of contentment.
