Small life

Image Credit:

There was sunshine and flurry;
When she stepped out of the house,
But, rains put her life in a hurry
She ran to reach her spouse.

As she walked across a cafe,
Old memories were re-visited
Her exquisite feelings went astray
A small and easy life she coveted.

Like a queen she walked in
Tossing back her flowing hair
She was ready to indulge in a sin
Of coffee-addiction without a care!

For once she wanted to forget
That she had children to fend for
Chores to-be-done with sweat,
And her in-law's standing order.

If for just an afternoon she could escape, and simple be. Bravo, touching realness in your words.

@Karen S. Yeah, there is no absolute escape.

Sun Bloom said...

@brudberg. True.

For her, the coffee shop is a liminal zone ...
