chores

Every day in October, I’m sharing poetry-writing inspiration, exercises, and prompts on jordanelisheva.com for the #31poems challenge. This is the poem I wrote in response to today’s prompt:

Necessary evils?
Whether hard labor or mundane tasks,
chores will always be there.
Necessary, yes, but must they be seen as evil?

Why not chose to enjoy them?

Back breaking hard labor
can become a workout —
and you don’t have to pay for a gym membership.

Mundane, mindless tasks
give you an opportunity to think —
freedom to daydream without worrying that you’re wasting time.
