It’s Party Time, Corporate Ladder and Saturday Six Minute Challenge

Yesterday, after a long time, I had some free moments to enjoy reading posts on my reader at leisure. It is becoming a luxury for me nowadays. I decided to work from home yesterday,not that I was not working but the freedom from two hours of round trip commute and associated tiredness offered me the opportunity to indulge.   As usual, Murphy’s Law did work ( not sure who that Irishman was) and things that could go wrong went wrong at work on a Friday afternoon keeping me busy on phone and by e-mails.  But I am digressing, it has no relevance to this story.  Ah! the freedom of working in one’s pajamas. Wonderful indeed.  I immediately realized how much I was missing out. One has to do what has to be done. So no complaints and no regrets. I also ended up posting few of my own poems. All those activities, of course, resulted in going to bed late at night.

Getting up late on a Saturday morning, first post I saw was “It’s a Party“.  With those pictures of cake and coffee, my sleep deprived mind conjured up a vision of evite to a birthday party.  Little did I realize that Jackie was offering only zero calorie foods and beverages at the party.  However, there is ample opportunity to mix and mingle and make new friends.  So do go ahead, visit and make friends.

One of the new friends I made,  Amruta, had a beautiful poem titled Corporate Ladder, a new version of the nursery rhyme, Ten in the Bed, on her site.  I like her spin on the nursery rhyme and could not desist making a comment.  Sharing with you all my comment to Amruta’s post as my contribution to Kristi’s Saturday Six Minute Challenge.

View From The Top 

It’s always lonely at the top
When you fall down
You break your neck
Higher you rise
Mightier is the fall
And oh my,
What a wreck
Do you make
But
.

The view must be
Beautiful from the top
So what the heck !

Have a beautiful weekend, dear readers.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
