This poem was inspired by how little writing I got done yesterday. The weather was so beautiful, the day required three walks and four hours working in the garden. The garden’s looking great, but I do need to try to focus more today.
Hot Desking at Home
Who gets the desk?
The dining room table?
I’ll take a window whenever I’m able.
Who’s got a meeting
And needs a closed door?
Maybe I can work here on the floor.
Who’s making coffee
At quarter to nine?
I’d like milk and sugar in mine.
Who’s going out
For a short walk?
I’ll come along, we’ll have a nice talk.
Who’s having lunch
Just before noon?
I’ll finish this meeting and be there soon.
Who took their laptop
Out in the sun?
A few more pages and then I’ll be done.
Who’s gotten nothing
Accomplished all day?
I thought we’d do better working this way.
