Mess – Five Minutes of Writing
My desk is a mess. My house seems to be a mess. My room has some mess.
I don’t like mess.
I don’t like my schedule to be changed or boxes sitting around or laundry on the floor.
I do like neat piles in order, a checklist half-way completed, and children.
I don’t like packing or the hospital or squabbles between siblings.
I do like purging, reading a great book, and kid stories.
I don’t like mess, but I do like living, loving, lingering.
