Work from home

Mother and daughter duo


four books,

Monopoly and a snack.

Four minutes of quiet,

And now you are back.

Two more games,

Scissors and craft,

Time’s running none to spare.

TV while unfurling,

A nest from your hair.

I wind it up neatly,

In two little buns,

Answering questions quirky and fun.

And like that, it’s lunchtime

And I’ve got nothing done.


P.S: We are all facing the same dilemma in which work from home makes life more challenging and demanding, where is a sharp contrast between reality and thought.

Wishing you all the might to bear this until we reach a new normal.
