A Journey into Poetry


Poetry Potluck Monday  THEME:

Journey and the Road Ahead

I hope I have succeeded in showing that both roles have an equal level of importance and drudgery. Has anyone noticed BTW that all the chores miraculaously do themselves in this poem?

  1. That is SO clever, Madeleine! I love it. You're the only other person I know who says 'chunters' and boy, do you sound like an awesome housekeeper!

  5. You are a busy lady Madeleine. Wow. I consider it a good day to get laundry done & a meal for the kids. I could never find the time to do all of that in a single day. It would take me days, weeks...

    Thanks for stopping by & commenting at my place today.

  10. LOL! Well, the link for the invisible completer of chores I guess should be: www.theelvesoftheshoemaker.com
    I doubt I'd get all those things done in a day either, well not in the winter atleast, but it was fun to write. :O)

  12. Hi Madeline
    Thanks for the follow. This is a cleverly woven poem. Very smooth flowing.

  13. Excellent! Nice parallel view of lives that merge and work together, yet separately. I'll take hubby's schedule over yours though-- that's a lot of work!

  15. I love the comparison of both 'jobs', neither being more important, or less tiring, than the other. What a fun read.
