Exhaustive Smiles. 

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.
