Poetic Asides

That’s The Spirit

THAT’S THE SPIRIT

It’s easy —
what’s not to believe?
You feel it —
don’t you!? ‘Cause
the Mr. (Claus, that is) says
it’s in each of us!

My
days are
filled with work…
phone calls, emails, meetings.
All clamoring for my attention.
At home, more work is waiting…
dinner, dishes, laundry, a garden to weed
and mouths to feed out in the barn.
Meanwhile, April calls. Thoughts turn to poetry. Composing lines
in my mind, yet writing less than intended. Life is
full.
