Rena's challenge for today is to "write a poem that depicts your universe that you think others could relate to." Here's my poem:
U is for Universal
Life is like juggling and that is a fact.
Sometimes it feels like a balancing act!
Family and friends - my students, my boss,
Some of the "balls in the air" that I toss.
Shopping and cooking - laundry and cleaning,
Picking up poops in the yard - so demeaning!
Writing, revising then writing some more,
Counting rejections - but, who's keeping score?
Going to conferences, workshops and meetings,
Taking a break makes me feel like I'm cheating.
Updating websites and posting on blogs
In between feeding and walking my dogs
Twitter and Facebook - a new "friend" request,
Next off to LinkedIn and then Pinterest!
Finally, exhausted, I lay down to sleep,
I count all my blessings, and then I count sheep!
