break the block

We all have our to-dos,
and there are times
when the tasks feel so many
as to be a steep mountain
too high to climb,
so that even the exercises
that fuel us and free us
instead overwhelm
and cast shadow.
Healing hours
are buried in boxes
of work and deadline
and we are embattled
for their honor.

My husband suggested making a list
to break the block of task mountain.

green peppers (2)
avocado (1)
lemon (1)
sweet potatoes (2)
salsa (medium/hot)
deli meat (you choose)
sausage loop
chicken breast
reduced fat wheat thins
tomato basil triscuits
sandwich bread
drinking straws
something salty
something sweet
AAA batteries


For You have girded me with strength for battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me. -Psalms 18:39
