“White Towels” by Richard Jones

I have been studying the difference
between solitude and loneliness,
telling the story of my life
to the clean white towels taken warm from the dryer.
I carry them through the house
as though they were my children
asleep in my arms.

      Funny how some weeks work out that way. I’ve had this week scheduled out for sometime…I’m not even sure what’s in the line-up. I like feeling surprised too.

      Like hitting a meeting and hearing exactly what you need to hear. ❤️
