On Cleaning the Bedroom

My friend Rebecca has done the impossible:  she has made me want to clean bedrooms.  Oh sure, I can easily see the poetry in a clean kitchen.  Bedrooms — especially my own — don’t get that attention.

May there be three good books at ready on each table,
and light enough to read.

A place for shoes to be tucked out of sight
so that roads are forgotten.

Read the whole lovely poem at Story Warren.
