    A Housewife's Moment of Sanity

    A blissful moment

    Fleeting

    Nevertheless uplifting

     

    Those empty baskets

    and not a single cloth hanging  on the washing

     

    How such in a way

    Much indulging than a Hagen Daaz’s tube  

    For a few hours that stay

     

    One hopes a freeze in time

    That won’t melt or gone

    As soon as the ironing needs to be done

     

    Where are the fairies whenever one needs them most?

    You are a true poet and I identify with this subject. A housewife's work is never done. And a fairy would be great.

    Thank you very much.I'm flattered lol and learning a lot from my disliking the ironing chore (:-.

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
