A Standing Ovation

I pull my clothes from the dryer.
Separate socks from shirts and slacks.
Then I carefully, slowly iron and fold each shirt.
Then I fold the slacks.
Then I grab each pair of socks

and roll them into a little ball.
Colors, shape, texture.
Simplicity surrounds me.

I've accomplished something.
I'm an accomplished person.

I move and marvel at the way space never seems too large
for the smallest task.

The universe applauds.
I'd like to thank the universe and all of my friends
for making this moment possible.
