Everyday Chaos

5 Feb

rumpled bed

How easy but painful – living vicariously…No, please,




your own eyes, your own toes, your own breath

one step

one trip

one sleep

one sip

each at once and after, again.

Blind often

we are in each beat

to the perfection,

no matter how chaotic,

of a rumpled bed

a makeup filled counter

dirty dishes

writhing piles of laundry




Dust accumulates faster than can be cleared

fresh turns sour

mold grows

mascara smears.

Who can see the transcendence of dishevelment?

This morning:

a fine cup of tea in a deconstructing house.

Comparing my chaotic life with teens to my friend’s life expressions – she is a being who seems to manifest loveliness in every gesture – prompted this poem out of me this summer.

When I saw Ivon’s Post,  Imperfection, I wanted to reblog a reblog 🙂


Toasting you with my teacup, amid the mess of life, in our shared moments of surrender, embrace, and JOY!
