The Best I Can Do Today (sonnet)

A day like this one scatters deep confusion,
To every corner of my mind and home.
My thoughts are in disorganized profusion,
And it’s most likely best I am alone.
The outer world, too, seems to be in a pout:
First snow will spit and swirl, and then the sun
Glares on a while until the grey clouds put it out
And icy wind returns with cruel abandon.
Our poor dogs look to me with deep auburn eyes,
As if to ask, “What should we do today?”
I have no answer for them, which they surmise,
And know they must look to themselves for play.
Yet in the midst of all my lack of focus,
There you remain, my heart’s and mind’s safe locus.
