Darn Finances

Money –
that vital ingredient –
threatens to rebuke us,
these haphazard habits
equating to negligence.

Investments –
retirement’s foundation –
falter, then plunge,
a mini crisis hitting
too close to home.

Change –
prodded by re-evaluation –
commands control,
scoffs at ideal’s naiveté,
imperfection highlighted.

(Written for dVerse’s quadrille night, hosted by Whimsygizmo, whose prompt is change.  All submitting to Ragtag Community’s, vital; Fandago’s, rebuke; and Manic Mondays 3 Way prompt, imperfection.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. I think this is the bit I related to most
    “Change –
    prodded by re-evaluation –
    commands control,
    scoffs at ideal’s naiveté,”
    While I try to be sensible with my money, I’m rarely as good as I want to be with it.

  2. Finances drive me nuts. My sweet wife is the accountant in the family. I even quit going with her to do the taxes; she tells me I ask dumb questions.
