  7. I picked up the sponge and started scrubbing. You know, there’s something to washing dishes. All day you’re worrying about biology projects, sleep schedules, losing weight, in-laws, the impending eruption of Yellowstone… You’re swimming in a bottomless ocean.

    In these times of uncertainty, you know one thing is for sure: the dishes. You know how to scrub marinara sauce off of a plate. You can rinse out a glass of orange juice. Suddenly the world becomes simple and unburdening.

    I think I’ll go rake some leaves next.

  11. Sponge


    Like a sponge

    I absorb the world around me




    And sounds


    Like a sponge

    I clean up

    The messes of others


    I am used

    Rung out

    And reused


    Like a sponge

    I am durable

    Yet delicate


    Prone to damage

    When run across the rough

    Surfaces of life


    Yet enjoy the soft touch

    Of your hands


    And when you clean me

    I am new

    Like a sponge

    Ready to be used

  36. Sponge

    Don’t want to write about sponge bob or absorbing info like a sponge… Sea sponges bring to mind some nice images, but I don’t have much to say about them (nor about another type of sponge that comes to mind.)


    A tip.

    Sink sponges: Cut them in half. You’ll end up with double for your money. Do your sponges really need to be THAT big when you’re cleaning up and/or doing the dishes?
