      I love the picture...and as some one else said, short and sweet. I love poetry, but don't read or write much of it anymore.

      Amazing that so much can be conveyed or hinted at in so few words...and to me at least "dishes" can represent so many different things. I really, really like this.

      As an artist, may I say the painting was perfect. We can't do them like that anymore. We can't afford to take the time. As far as the poem . . . it is perfectly balanced like haiku. Content . . . it's the same all over.

      ...well if it's gonna make you feel any better I'll come over and do your dishes because your writing is so very eloquent and I would put you in the world class of a writer's writer.

      O my....I get this. I kind of feel like this about my 'stuff'...I have packed and unpacked and repacked it more times than I care to count. I rarely use the word hate but I have been known to say that one can grow to HATE their stuff.

      Great poem!!! Succinct and to the point.

      Voted up++++ and shared

      It amazes me how you can put so much into so few words! Who doesn't hate doing dishes but only you could put it into such a great poem.

      Voted up, funny, and awesome.
