poem about householding

As I attend to my children
As I attend to my partner

As I attend to my community
As I attend to my home

I attend to All That Is.

When I get frustrated with child, partner, community or home,

I am not seeing what is Real

I know this and yet, I am given the opportunity many times a day to know it again and again

I am stubborn, and learning

Seeing what is Real
I have all the time in the world
I have all the patience in the world
I am the world

I chose this path
This path chose me
We are on it together

All of us, Householders
