Free Time

What do you do
with your free time?

I like to write with mine
It’s quite sublime

But free time
is difficult to find
when other add items
to growing to-do lists

Expectations and responsibilities
Favors and reasonable requests
The cost of free time

Other commitments prevented me from writing for Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub yesterday, but I found a wee bit of free time during lunch today to catch up. The word of the day to include in our 44-word Quadrilles is free.

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  2. Free time can almost feel like you are stealing when the list is full

    I know exactly what you mean! Requests which seem so reasonable at the time that we feel miserly about refusing them… and yet….

    Amen to this. Hardly such a thing as “free time” anymore. Sigh.

    Free time can be spent in ways we didn’t expect to spend it.
