The Mundane…

The mundane…

written by: Dr. MOLLY JOSEPH

 

Xmas waves
                   recede
life flows
                reverse
through
              routine
channels…

a lazy 
         langour
keeps you
               in bed
till
       the morning’s
soft caress
                   turns
piercingly hard…

Life,
     I marvel 
at thy turns…

busied 
          footsteps,
hurried
           farewells
dashing 
             vehicles
rushing 
             to office..

part of 
          the mundane
left at home
             half done
half finished.

the toddler
          caught up
in  between 
          whines..

concrete 
           nested lives
wake up
            with a clutter
to ebb and flow
when 
       morning
thickens….
