Finally, I decided today was the day I’m gonna dig my dead blog, clear it of the dust that had gathered from an idle writer-blocked mind and thought – this is it. I’m gonna revive my blog, no matter what it takes, no matter how dumb, stupid or idiotic my writings get – I am gonna start with a clean slate!
But I needed inspiration, like an artist searching a muse – I sat down with my laptop wondering where to start and dang! – Rajlakshmi posts a prompt for Magpie Tales and well that’s where I thought I should begin! The Magpie Tales Prompt – neat idea! And so here we are back to writing poems, giving the idle mind a muse to work on, an inspiration, a place to begin with!! Identical to the dust that had settled on my blog – here’s a Dusty Chaos for the prompt!
~::~ Dusty Chaos ~::~
I clean the house and clean again
But the dust never settles
Sometimes it just swirls around
Standing like tea-leaves in a kettle
I wash the pans
Vacuum spiraling stairs,
And even tidy the cellars
I sweep the chimney
Wipe the doors
And even cobwebs on pillars
I clean and clean my house again
For the dust bunnies never leave
They curl upon figurines of toys
While I brush them in my grief!
I clean my house and clean again
And yet the dirt just lingers
I feel there are angels flying everywhere
Firing curses through their fingers
I’m tired of trying to clean up
I ain’t cleaning, no more
I don’t care if angels scatter dirt
Like mini polka dotted décor!
Exasperated, I give up
Let filth be piled up on the floor!
This is my entry to the Prompt – Mag 257 (hopefully I don’t give up on writing again 😳 )
Hope you liked my entry, as usual leave your feedback (it helps soothe the sore mind that worked hard to pen this down! 😉 )

Only for her to ultimately realise it is the gold dust of her very being …
haaahh!! thats a new thought!! Maybe she cud then collect the dust, sell it off and buy herself some new clothes 😛 😉
I’m with her on this one! Life’s too short to vacuum!
yay!! thanks Keith! 😀
This one feels genuine! It’s the circle of life – for dust 🙂 I like the words – standing like tea leaves – very poetic!
