Daily Prompt Overworked by the Daily Post
A loaded desk
With neatly stacked files
Pending notifications on the laptop
Conference calls on Skype.
Mails to be attended to
Messages to be replied
To-do lists to tick off
Reports to be compiled.
The oven timer going off
Warm leftovers to dine
Pasta ravioli and a wilted salad
Along with a bottle of wine.
Phone ringing incessantly
The lawyer, her friends and family
Reminding her to free herself
For the court hearing, road trip and the party.
Overworked days at work,
And the pending divorce to file
The single mother looked at her baby
And broke into the most beautiful smile.
