Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A quiet thing - free verse
Sorting through my too cluttered desk
I spy a decorative card-
One of fond appreciation,
Encouragement and kind 'thank you'.
I smile.

High-pitched barking from my spaniel
Reminds me it’s his dinnertime;
Trying hard to write this poem
And trying hard not to rhyme – oops!
I smile.

Soft yarn on a hand-knit sweater
waits for my granddaughter to wear
Labor of love and now finished
For her, navy wears white flowers;
I smile.

Glaring from an office corner
Stands worn bag of unsorted mail
Why did I let it go so long?
To write, to knit, to write, of course!
I smile.

My daily ordinary life
Is not exciting, rather tame,
Simple creative poesy.
"It’s a quiet thing," Sondheim wrote;
I smile.
