yield

yield

yield [yeeld]
to give forth or produce
to give up or over; relinquish or resign, to surrender or submit

Here I am, yielding to the list, the things that must be done.

Here I am making sure I get the most yield from my time,
my energy,
even my produce.

Here I am surrendering and submitting yet not feeling resigned.

I have not puzzled over a word in too long.

Here I am, yielding to the challenge of language.

Writing with prompts – just one more day for the July list
