Writing Me… I am {Adrienne}

Welcome to Writing Me: Part III, a community writing project to celebrate creative inspiration collectively, and as individuals. For the next few weeks, we will be writing the I Am Poem. Be sure to link yours up! This week, we’re sharing Adrienne’s from My Memory Art.

Writing Me…I Am {Adrienne}
 I am settled into the comfort of our Saturday morning.

I wonder little to nothing when settled here, at home, with him.

I hear country music, passing cars and the tap, tap, tap of lap top keys.

I see curtains I don’t like and chores that need doing.

I want little to nothing when settled here, at home, like this.

I am content.

I pretend nothing in this place, this safe place.

I feel complete, connected to the family we built, even though the ‘nest’ is empty.

I touch their lives, as they’ve touched mine. We shape and mold each other.

I worry very little about us, or about them.

I cry easily. With them. For them. In sorrow. In joy. With gratitude.

I am, more than anything else, a wife and a mom.  A homebody.

I understand our dynamics and cherish them.

I say little, and am heard.

I dream of many more years like these, of the other child’s wedding and of grand kids.

I try to make lots of memories and to capture them;  to make the moments last.

I hope for…long for…spiritual growth, seasons of creativity and bits of laughter.

I am home.

Though it’s her job as office manager that helps ‘pay the rent’, it’s the creative, crafty stuff that she considers to be her real work.

  1. I’ve long been a reader of Adrienne’s. This poem is perfect!

  2. I love the way you describe home. Mine is still full-to-busting with kids, but I feel the same way about it. Just that, this is the best place to be. 🙂

  3. This is so lovely, Adrienne. Beautifully put.

  4. I cry often,too. I think our sensitive souls make us even more creative. 😉
    This was perfect. I enjoyed the warmness and comfort of it.
