Fishing for slices, baiting the hook
To slice is to notice, wonder
Are my eyes and ears open?
Stuck. No thoughts. No words. Nothing.
Check my email. More comments yet?
Just one more cup of coffee
Repeat lines, borrow structures and formats
Should I write about folding laundry?
Someone should write about folding laundry.
No doubt someone has sliced laundry.
No new slices under the sun
Five baskets wait to be folded.
Cats burrow in clean laundry, never dirty.
Dirty dishes, alarm clocks, brushing teeth.
Walking the dog, feeding the cats.
Remember the wonder of ordinary moments.
Do meaningful stories really lurk there?
Maybe for others, not for me.
Maybe tomorrow, but definitely not today.
First, one more cup of coffee.
Thanks to Kathleen Sokolowski for the idea to write a slice in the six-word memoir format.
