Housewife's Xanadu

 



















No rules that obligate us
No missions we can't solve
Stationary roads ahead
Let sun and moon revolve

What happens to us, happens
Give it our biggest shot
Raining down on reigning us
More pennies in the slot

So what if skies are heavy
Accepting the sublime
We'll reason, judge, appreciate
While journeying our minds

I love the way you express the truths of ourselves in the world, and how earth and people correspond in this living world. Beautiful piece, very correlated to the living physical world. Well done!

Awesome picture and a great poem. I wish I had more of this attitude when my child was younger. I'd have fewer grey hairs now!
