Absent-mindedne . . .

Ever have days like this one?

Left my freshly brewed tea
sitting on the counter
until it was colder
than room temperature.

Left a scented candle
burning in the bedroom
until all the wax had melted
and the flame had almost died.

Left a poem half-written
in an open Word document
until the original inspiration
was all but forgotten.

Left meals unmade and forgotten,
left laundry soaking in the washer,
left the puppy inside for too long…
left my head in bed this morning!

    love the word flow.
