Shiny object, laundry pile,
random pic to make her smile.
Running squirrel or wayward
breeze, playin’ puppy, ruffled trees.
Dirty dishes, diapers, kids;
Tupperware…can’t find the lids.
Kitten purr and yummy snacks,
legos loose in stacks and stacks.
Online news that’s never good.
Take the breather? Yep, I should.
Facebook, Twitter, games on apps.
Getting sleepy? There’s a nap for that.
The world wields all of ’em, one by one.
No wonder the writing never gets done.
Somehow written for Poetic Asides, in between shiny objects.
