Mother Nature Spoke

Mother Nature Spoke

So engrossed was I
staring at an oblong screen
life passing me by
so much gone unseen
washing machine loaded
clothes need to be clean
beautiful sunny morning
what more can I glean
from social media
advertising and such
keeping on top of business
because it matters so much
to all that will listen
for all to be in touch
in my little box
unlike a rabbit hutch
sitting in stillness
my computer, my crutch
then suddenly from nowhere
on my window a large tap
frightened me to death
almost said ‘holy crap’
I looked up in surprise
hands up from my lap
the sun has disappeared
missed that one ‘holy crap’
there I said it…
Mother Nature spoke
oh no! the washing
this was no joke
the time for cleaning clothes
is an hour and a half
so much can happen
Mother Nature’s having a laugh
taking deep breaths
and as a matter of course
I reluctantly go to the cupboard
to retrieve the clothes horse
can’t do much about it
I have no excuse, other than
Mother Nature spoke, so…
The washing line’s out of use!
