Simple Living—-Take Two

Simple Living—Take Two
I shared with you the other day a paradelle I wrote on simple living. It was fun to write and I wanted to try writing one. But in terms of a form to use for the topic of simple living, it was totally mismatched. And so I used the simple form of a shadorma, and it fit the subject much better.
The Simple Life
(Shadormas)

I ache to
live the simple life
keep it plain
keep it spare
find the balance point in all
and feel the magic

I want the
clearness in schedule,
surroundings,
no pressure
in how I live my moments
but much escapes me

since behold
clutter reappears
scheduling
simple life
get complicated again
where is the answer

I start with
small bits and pieces,
times throughout
my day when
I recognize that simple
has appeared – I smile

work for more
not content with small
inch along
bit by bit
for simple life extended
to more of my time
