A very clean 2013


Well, it seems that way
anyway.
Clean and all.
Open, blank, unwritten on.

And the smashing white/blue
sky is limitless today.
How unlike
our skies to be that
way
this day.

But it is (a gift!
Thank you, God.)

SO, making the most
of a Beautiful Good Thing
I will do what any
ordinary human ought to do.

Start well
by cleaning the bathrooms (check)
balancing two months' of the checkbook
(almost check)
and pruning the overgrown
out of shape
too tall branches on the
pink blooming viburnum
which,
sure as it's January,
always blooms pink for me
just when I need it.

Linking with dVerse Poets Open Link Night--
first of the New Year.
More inspiring words over there....

  4. Can't imagine pruning in January -- we're snow covered now until April/May/June -- who knows. Have to love Manitoba.

    1. Oh Karin--we DID have snow on the ground (for one whole week) this time last year. So you can see my joy at the blue skies and warm-ish weather that permitted me to go outside today:-)Why, it got up to 38 degrees.
      Yes, I'm guessing warmer than Manitoba.
