Scattered #sol16 4 of 31



go here
go there
send that email
check this box
cross that off
meet this deadline
greet this parent
have that meeting
add one more thing
and then another

the to-do list never stops
the inbox always grows
brain scattered
too full
how it all
will get done

walk away
take a break
have some fun
dance it out
even if just for a bit

it can wait
until tomorrow
there’s always tomorrow

    Yup, there is always tomorrow. I understand that feeling of everything bearing down on you like a snowball rolling downhill gathering all objects ready to hit you. I hope the weekend brings you some restful moments.

    Nice! I am wondering if I am brave enough to try a poem at some point. One reason why I love summer so much is that I can just do the thing I want to do next without the constant pressure of trying to remember everything that has to happen.

      I used to be afraid to write poems, believing that I couldn’t write them well enough, but sometimes a poem is the best way to express how I feel. Had I tried writing how I was feeling yesterday as a narrative, it would have been too clunky and the essence of my day would have been lost. Try one out if it feels right and see where it takes you!

    Bet there’s not a teacher in the world that can’t relate to this. We both wrote poems today. I love yours!

    The urgency is captured in the short line format and multiple actions occurring across your day. The ending puts everything into perspective. A well crafted poem that accurately paints the scene of your busy day.
