Scrabbled Day

Leave a comment

I tinker with my obligations
before the day begins
shuffling them like Scrabble tiles
considering their perfect placement
on my game-board of hours

plan my drives
to count both ways
combine lists for family and work
to do double duty –
like using X to make OX and AX

pray each move will be efficient
and that I finish well
like placing Q
on TRIPLE LETTER SCORE
followed by U, I, T,
emptying my tray with S
on DOUBLE WORD SCORE
– a microcosm of Your
miraculous multiplication
of my efforts.

Now that we’re back into the fall schedule, life again takes on some of the multitasking challenges of, say, Scrabble. This poem was first published in Calendar.
