Rolling wheel of life

As my day comes to an end, usually after my little ones go a-dream drifting, I step into the small balcony of my house, soaking in moments of peace and solitude. A soft cushion-hammock hangs near the door connecting the hall and balcony. It is the favorite swing of my children and as I relax my tired frame in it, their sweet baby scent pleases my senses. I watch the twenty-odd homes in the building facing us, as their activity level slowly decreases and lights go off. My shy muse descends only then!

life goes on with its hum-drum-hum
round the clock tick-tock-tick
run in circles, reaching nowhere
bound, cannot choose my pick

mad monotonous cling-clang-cling
time drips out pit-pat-pit
wheel of life whirs fast, step aside
stop, feel and share a bit!

For Sara Kendrick's "My Quiet Place" contest

    oh my gosh, we both wrote our poems for this contest from a similar location as well! I too was on the balcony(deck) of my house. But minus the children, I was just looking at the moon and listening to the night crickets. your message is like mine. Yes, we are alot the same. Yesha, weren't you the one who told me you were Virgo too like me ? Or are you another sign? I;m surprised I had ever missed this charming poem of yours!!
