To Do List for Saturday

A poem.

To Do List for Saturday

Do laundry
Vacuum the house
Go for a walk
Find a dragon's tooth
Use it to write in river sand
Slay the demons of dailiness
Climb a magnolia tree
Wait for the stars to appear
Wash in moonlight
Choose a perfect blossom
Curl up in it and sleep
Wake with wings unfolding
Join a flock of passing birds
Fly into morning light

– Fonda Bell Miller
