Someone Still Knows

The only thing on schedule this year are the ants.

The kitchen ants come through the light switch in April The back-door ants investigate the living room floor in June The shower ants take up residence in mid-July The sneaky ants pick a surprise entrance in September

With everything amiss, it is a comfort to know that someone still knows
What month it is.

  1. Not sure what this says about me, but this might be my most favorite post thus far!!! It reminds me a Kathleen Norris and her little book β€œThe Quotidian Mysteries.” She has a poem in there that makes me feel the same as when I read yours β€” relieved that at least the tiny daily chaos and routine (and ants who can follow a calendar) are all moving forward, even when I feel too overwhelmed to go on.
