Monday: An Etheree

Pain.
Joint fail.
Knee twists and
I scream and fall.

Existentially,
this mirrors Monday's work.
New school pattern and new
Ways of thinking and being now.
"Do your best" with teaching, home, kids; yet –
Somehow, enough never feels good enough.

I am participating in National Poetry Writing Month, writing one poem for each day in April. 

(Thanks to Elisabeth Ellington for introducing me to the etheree form.)

    So much truth here. We’ve all been there…and most of us are still there. I hope that gives you some comfort. And I think, for the record, that we are all much to hard on ourselves!
