Spark Joy

I bought her
the book
on tidying
your house,
your mind,
your life.

"Look at every
object
and determine

if it
doesn't
spark joy,

throw it out."

I'm trying
not to read
too much
into her decision
to sleep
downstairs
last night.

  4. LOL, I remember a friend "helpfully" giving me a book titled Women Who Do Too Much, when I was working three jobs to survive. Not helpful. This poem made me smile.

  12. Haha! Love this. I always have to restrain myself from eye-rolling when people refer to that "if it doesn't bring you joy" line.
