Who am I?
My head still spins
from revolving roles:
teacher, nurse, referee
to the crazy blonde creatures
now sleeping in peace. Finally,
I am free to just be me, and yet-
I find myself here, staring at the wall.

Hello, poetry readers! I usually let my poems stand alone, but not today because it has been a really long time since I last wrote a poem.
My life has been hectic lately, rather all consuming and leaving no time to even think about writing a poem. Between taking care of the kids and refinishing their bathroom by ourselves (hello learning curve!) I’ve been pretty scattered.
With my husband out of town this week, the grand finale of each day was getting the kids in bed. But then there was after… One night I was too tired to do more chores or work on a project. I also wanted complete silence, so television was out. That’s when I found myself staring at a wall!
Fortunately, I thought of Colleen’s Poetry Challenge. I hopped over to her page to see what the words of the week were, and they gave me the nudge to write again.
Woohoo! It feels good. Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
