Love's Constancy (Haikus on the Ordered Life)

There must be balance

Somewhere in between burnout

And lax indolence

But if this is true

I still struggle to find it

In my daily life

When I do it all

Every project on my list

There’s joy in labor

But joy becomes stress

In a few frenetic weeks

Then fades to languor

Sloth leads to boredom

Which sparks me to my labors

Thus the cycle goes

Oh, help me, sweet Lord

To do the things I can do

In love’s constancy
