Dishes 

My mom has often said “everyone wants to save the world, but nobody wants to do the dishes”. Today I wonder – what if doing the dishes was saving the world?

In the everyday zen

Of the land of lost socks

I’ll be vacuuming when

Opportunity knocks


As I’m folding the laundry

Or hunting to find

The sweatshirt that’s missing

The treaty is signed ….


When dreams are just wishes

On blankets unfurled

And doing the dishes

Is saving the world……
