PFF47: List Person

Flashback Friday

Welcome to Paula’s Friday Flashback! This is a challenge begun by Fandango and it’s fun to see what we posted back when (as well as the comments). The post below is a reblog of a post I made exactly one year ago. Sorry this didn’t post at its usual time ~ I forgot today was Friday. All the days are a big fat blur, moving like sludge, yet going quickly at the same time. I don’t get that much done, just kinda blah around. How’s my novel going? Lol, well, I’ll tell you… I just bought a paper/pencil puzzle book and last night was thrilled to solve the first cryptogram I’ve tried in decades. Thanks for asking about my novel! 🤣

Listing

I listed
All the home chores
I had neglected to do:
The vacuuming,
The dusting,
The dishes,
Some ironing too.

I listed
All the reasons
I was better off
With you gone:
The lying,
The crying,
The cold silent
Depressed dawn.

I listed
All the fun things
I’d plan with new friends:
The game nights,
The art walks,
The movies and dinners,
To fill
My weekends.

I listed
My lists
In a master
List of all lists,
To stay organized
And methodical,
Which made me feel
Blissed.

But I ran out of paper
And my cat stole my pen,
So I texted you
At midnight:
Please come back again!
