TODAY, SHE CLEANED HER HOUSE
After being covered with dust and dirt for years,
She took a moment to clean her house.
She brushed away the jealousy and vacuumed up the hate.
She swept away all the anger while mopping up sorrow.
And then, she took a moment to water the love.
She dusted the shelves of goodness and shined up
The tarnished images.
She defrosted the smiles she lost and cleaned out
Drawers of grudges.
She clipped the hedges of gluttony while destroying the weeds of lust.
She extinguished the fires of greed and planted some rows of happiness.
She opened the windows for a nice cool breeze of satisfaction.
The sun shone through and brightened the place where darkness
A dove perched upon her window sill.
Today, she cleaned her house.
