14. The Mundane

Laundry sorted, swished, swirled, spun,
Hung, tumbled, folded

Wheat ground, flour measured
Bread mixed, kneaded, proofed, baked

Beds made, rugs straightened
Dishes washed, dried, re-shelved

Floors swept, mopped
This tidied, that dusted, those scrubbed

There is a profound beauty in these routines
A sacredness to this ministry of home.
