The Grocery List

Milk, mayonnaise,
Self-control for
The short drive
To Sunday church.

Powdered sugar,
A vested interest
In the fellowship.
Or was that family?

Cotton balls, cooperation,
And one of those new
Frozen yogurt treats
For the strong and healthy.

Ten, or less, items;
Essentials in a basket.
Push the cart, undeterred
By that jammed-up wheel.

This poem was inspired by my sparse shopping list.

    • To clarify…this is my every other day list. We go through a gallon of milk each day😜 the deeper meaning is to choose wisely what we put in our lives (baskets) before our final “checkout.”
