I've a scattered mind and it's hard to focus.

Have my To-Do list yet not much gets crossed off.
I somehow manage to add things to it though.
Always finding something new to occupy myself.
Staring at the Christmas tree, still decorated.
Pine needles strew about on the floor.
I can hear the trash men coming down the street.
But alas this tree will have to wait till next week.
I am not used to being on my own.
I realize it will take me some time to find a routine.
Yet everyday I try to accomplish something.
There is no need to fret when something isn’t done.
Eventually I’ll get there, no need to hasten.
There is just me and I’m my own boss.
I do like this being on my own and free.
Coming and going as I please.
To choose what I want to eat…
...maybe a big bowl of Frosted Flakes even.
The vacuum is calling my name and I ignore it.
Once the house is de-Christmatized I’ll put it to work
Until then pine needles still accumulate on the floor…
...and under the wreath at my front door.
Today it is gently snowing outside my window.
I am content to sit here at my keyboard and watch…
…as snowflakes lazily, slowly, softly fall to earth.
My passion is writing and when the inspiration comes...
…I must create and everything else must wait.
After all my “To-Do” list will still be there when I’m ready.
And even though I’m scattered, I’m moving slow but steady.
