A Better Day After All

A Better Day After All

A ring of the phone announced
A holiday call to say “hello” 
The news from working days,
Days sometimes bringing nostalgic yearning,
That feeling of being a part of things,
A desire for the perception of good old days
Days when accomplishment was joy, and
There was news of friends gone by,
There was news of politics and meetings,
And then, then, the realization like night arc lights when
You’re gone, you’re gone, left behind, but
Today you didn’t have to drive on slick streets,
Today your frig had a grocery, and you could stay in;
Today you could write this little offering.
A better day after all.

Very good piece. Poet talks of two worlds n in the end she's happy her fridge holds all necessary things she can sit back n enjoy good work.

So true. We yearn for all the joy a workday brings but on the otherside the joy of not working and being home.Nice!

the good and the bad of both worlds. I complain about my work life but I know deep down, I would miss it (would be nice to only have to go in every other day though!!) REally liked this one, Sunlite Wanter.

You're right,, Paloma. Thanks for your reading it. A "frig" is a refrigerator. Actually, I'm too close to one - to easy to grab a snack these days.
