Working twilight


 


The contrast between the cedars and sky disappears


Everybody bone weary and near tears


In a state between work and leisure


Grabbing snitches of pleasure


 


Not having to watch the clock


To know work hour mocks


The house knows alarm clock hell draws near


Its rhythm is very clear


 


The refrigerator humming in time to the clock


Waiting for somebody to become overwrought 


When they canít find something quick to make for tomorrows lunch


The dryer full of clothes jumbled and scrunched.


 


A bird tweets at the top of the chimney flue


I hold myself back from calling you


Iím not afraid of birds I tell myself


As long as one doesnít fly down the chimney and land on the shelf


 


Eyes begin to burn


And minds no longer learn


Plans for evening projects laid aside


Flying in the face of pride


 


The house creaks once as the clock strikes eight


A tension arises about the childrenís slate


A parent settles the issue of which one is right


Tomorrow comes before weíve said goodbye to the twilight.

Exactly so...you expressed that sense of weariness and stress - the daily treadmill - perfectly.

So incredibly harsh and real. We had a duck fly about the living room in my parents' home once. It came down the chimney. We caught it and let it go back into the night. I guess the ducks liked the warmth of the chimney and roosted up there. I don't know. I'm no duck expert. Love this, Janet. Take care. Love and peace,

A day in the life...:)
I know that feeling...
Splendid introspective pen...
I put the snooze button on the alarm...lols
Blessings
