The Joy of Sweeping

A very small girl

Loved to sweep


Could create a

Playhouse anywhere

A world of her own

 

 

One favorite place

Was under a large tree

Which gave shade from

The hot Texas sun

 

 

It was just outside her

Mother’s kitchen door

A child’s joy

Transform space

With dolls and toys

 

 

She was a tiny alchemist


A craftsman

She could gauge

The exact space needed

 

 

Still today the juices flow

When considering space

Tender considerations

Like the child of long ago

What is needed

 

 

Acumen is projected


Sprinkled with whimsy


Oiled with love

She picks up

Her broom

And sweeps away

The acid of her life

Until all is supple once more

Sunday Scribblings #312  Prompt:  “The Rest of the Story”

The Rest of the Story

You open green almond eyes

Hold me in your gaze

Ask for the rest of the story

But until death the story is not complete

We will have to wait and see

It’s been no disappointment so far

You tell me what you think is needed

It didn’t occur to me

The story would end so soon

Or would end that way…

  1. This is glorious. It makes me remember my kids outside playing house….and me, even longer ago. My dolls were my children back then. Love the image of the artist, taking the same care as the inner child, to make all supple again. Just lovely.

  2. ‘sweeping away the acid of life’ is a powerful line…being engaged in that wonderful creative space is so important..it may never be the same as when were little but it can still be found..even when sweeping the kitchen floor..Jae
