No more excuses

no more excuses
too dark to soak up the sun
leaves still sodden from snowfall
too dark to follow footsteps and dodge ice patches.
too full to get another bowl of ice cream, another
cup of tea, the dishes are done, the dogs are fed,
the boyfriend is busy, too.
no more excuses
to delay what needs to be done,
the opening of the mind, creaking
notwithstanding, night has
come, light shines on
books and papers,
sit under the light
and begin.
