dishes need doing
laundry needs to be folded
at least it’s a start
no rest until I’m finished
I will fight this depression




Haiku is a form of poetry usually inspired by nature, which embraces simplicity. We invite all poetry lovers to have a go at composing Haiku. Be warned. You could become addicted.

I write to: avoid housework, challenge assumptions, make connections, clarify memories, glorify God.
