Ode to the Kitchen Floor


littered with crumbs,
paper, toys and spills

we stumble across it to the coffee each morn
run across it throughout the day

we sit on it to draw or play
spread big projects across it

there are dents & gouges throughout it
I say they give it character

we don't often think of it
or give it it's due

but the life of this family
revolves around this floor

we gather for joy and sorrow 
for work and play

it asks for almost nothing in return
except the occasional sweeping

every day and night it is here
collecting the crumbs of our lives.

Weaving words with the Write ALM prompts


  1. well done, jen! i especially like the last lines :)

  3. Love this! :D Heart of home!

  4. -we gather for joy or sorrow- that is my favorite bit. Kitchen floors to see our daily lives!
