Short Post Day

12 Apr

Thursday I painted the lounge walls; yesterday I cleaned the lounge carpet; the dreaded dusting was done on Wednesday; today I will put back all the crap the Hub won’t let me chuck: that will cover enough floor that it won’t need cleaning for another ten years.  The room will look sparkling clean; or it would, if we could see it behind the stuff.

Yesterday’s prompt was to write about the thing you didn’t choose, the road not taken, etc.  I’m not much given to what if?s or regrets, and I had to force this senryu out:

*

Human Nature

*

I chose to yield to

one who loved me.  A good choice. 

I resent it still.

Gotta go – crap to cart.

    I don’t suppose you make house calls. This place is a wreck

    you could have written what you tossed for cleaning
    (the lines, though, are a keeper)

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
