This is a fun look at a typical day in the life of me, metaphorically speaking. Amendment. Apparently I have not done my job well this time as the point that seemingly is being taken is that it is so hard to be a wife..I bow to that truth, however, the point is compared to what I put myself through to try to satisfy my creative drive in so many ways, being a wife is like a vacation, as hard as it can be. It's also fun to see the directions interpretations can go! Be well, Kathy


The World is my Oyster????
I’m a kid in a candy store looking around.
There’s so much I’m interested in and yet nothing I’ve found
can make me settle on just one sweet treat.
Life has always been a tease for me.
My senses absorb so many things all day.
There are music, poetry, jewelry, dinner and love to be made.
Such decisions about so many delights to choose
I sometimes feel nothing is all I can lose.
Create, restore, bake, dispense hugs and more
All the possibilities before me, I do so love and hate to adore!
Am I a starving young waif, or a mystical miss?
The world is my oyster. I hunger for this!
No shade is bad. No note is too wrong.
No color looks right and my chords hold too short or too long.
Dinner is burnt. The silver just snapped as I dapped.
The garnet I chose just rolled to the floor with a tap.
Oh, forget it. It’s exhausting, just trying to be me.
I’m forever chasing a note or a verb that could actually be
The perfection I crave in the gem of my life.
Oh, thank goodness I can rest and just be a wife.





Kathy Adams

Your words inspired a limerick:

There once was a woman, a wife,
Who put up with a lot of strife.
But she kept her smile,
Knowing all the while,
What it means to enjoy one's life.

Love and best wishes,

Well, I can't say I fully understand, never being a wife, but I will say that I don't envy you, I hear its a hard life being a wife...e

Hah! My first wife told me it was just too much darn work being a wife. This coming from a pampered young thing.

I liked your scream into the wilds of your world here . . .
