2017: The Year of Enough

by Rebecca A. Watson on February 2, 2018

in Creative Writing, writing


“You have a beautiful brain. Now use it.”
Self-examination leads to careful conversations
So ready to own my part, never expecting some won’t
I have had enough

Notifications drain before the sun rises
Emails beckon, ever unanswered
Procrastination becomes art
I give enough

Simple nouns give me pause
Distraction becomes de rigueur
Sober vomiting in the nighttime
My body cries enough

Dogs don’t walk themselves
Sweater swatches multiply
Therapy and an odd chore
Am I doing enough?

Heat wafts out of the oven
Pulling bread from its belly
Soup steam carves its initials in the cold air
I have enough

The quiet voice of the wind
Murmuring in the trees
Waldfee in my peripherals
I am enough
