A Day@Lockout

Morning dawned thoughts ascended

Detoxing ablution, physiological solution.

Caffeine kick or it is a tea you would pick

Turn into a home maid, vessels washed and neatly laid.

Yoga to stretch, flex to build up the ability

Breathing in and out, capacity for life till eighty

News in the paper you read about the virus surge

Lockdown rules to follow, to the people they urge.

Today’s breakfast banana with pancake

With kindled appetite two you take.

A session with words, dance with the verse

Poetry or prose, whichever not averse.

Lunchtime preparation, vegetables you dice

Rice and sambhar, always finish with the curds

Siesta for good, lighter becomes the mood

Fresh in the afternoon, no need to brood.

It is now three forty, time for the afternoon tea

Crumbling crackers, though not the edifice

Ruckus in the balcony, oh! Ravens, thank heavens

No more slogans, life gives a lemon.

Scrabble or a card game, the time you tame

Enough of the talk, now walk the talk

Take a brisk walk, words keep pace

Day has been good, reign did peace.

A light meal for dinner, a reflection of the thoughts, inner

As you lie on the bed, recall the day inside your head

Sigh! somewhere some people don’t have it good

With folded hands, grateful for one’s day, the least you could.
