Is it ironic that my free verse is about taxes?

My free verse for this month's Perfectly Poetical Tuesday....

And Taxes
Tax time. Looking back in time.
Miles traveled, dates recorded, gains and losses.
Somewhere in between lines of tidy numbers
Were acquaintances made, lessons learned,
Breath and blood and tears.
Life flowing unstoppable, unexpected, and (unlike subtraction)
Uncertain with few exceptions - one of which is taxes.


  1. Oh, Stephanie! This is lovely. So true. Taxes are SUCH a record of the year gone by. Never thought of it that way before.

  2. Ha! What a positive spin on Taxes! Now, if we had to itemize happinesses and disappointments, do you think tax season would be more or less of a chore?....


What do you have to say about that?
