A Walk Through My Daily Routines

Updated on April 15, 2019

I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.

Doing the light

switch swing

with aggressive

sheet shove

I assemble

a reality check.


Parade of pets

to potty and food

two dogs two cats

one tan dog

one tan cat

one black dog

one black cat

all falling in line

behind my heels

before sunrise.


Fill sink with

hot water

soap for morning

dishes

make coffee

find a place

to open my eyes

drink in some worlds

pour out some

words.


Find my way

to my Lazyboy

my red notebook

drink coffee

think of a good line.


Walk to my sons room

gently but firmly

grip his shoulder

to begin a process

of waking him up.


Start to wake

up younger kids

day begins.


This is morning

every morning

routine.


Routine.


A shot

at simplicity

through

reaching

perfection

of a single

act

repeated

each day.

        A daily routine looked at with love and tackled with devotion turns it into an enjoyable bunch of actions. I enjoy reading this poem.

        Jaime, this poem is very nice, reminding me of an extended Haiku. It is one I will read often. So glad you wrote it - it seems to make mornings, even with glitches, more worthwhile.
