Who was calling?

The phone was ringing

Cooker was whistling
As the cuckoo clock was cooing
Oil in the pan was ready for some frying

Little son was crying
For his throat was sure hurting
Mom to kiss off tears that soon stopped rolling

Laundry load was calling
To shift the clothes for drying
Microwave announcing that coffee was done warming

Mom was not accepting
Little girl strongly claiming
That she sure is an expert when it came to do swimming

"Can you handle swimming
In a wild river flowing?
Only then you are expert", said Mom while explaining

Eyes welled up to rimming
As she went off  for some thinking
"Average swimmer Mommy!" said she finally smiling

With both now agreeing
Mom gladly did the signing
Permission slip for camping that was soon coming.

Another kept on calling
For some help with problem solving
Where the spinner landed when it was done with some spinning?

Halfway through the reading
About probability solving
"Did we ever learn this?" wondered Math brain hard at working

Dad was busy cleaning
Plants that needed trimming
His attention was elsewhere on the Cricket that was playing

Mom was done with serving
And the kids were done with eating
Dad took them upstairs for their much needed resting

All the while...
The phone kept ringing
Was it you calling?

The verses are very pleasing
With each line aptly telling
How you were admirably managing
Many things that needed your handling.

No,I was not ringing
Though your blog I was reading
And very much envying
Your great skill in writing.

Mom to kiss off tears that soon stopped rolling/

oh... my mom would be yelling
when to school , we get going,
bickering, playing and unmindful of timing..

reminds my childhood when all three of us will make her crazy each morning..

nice one this is

Amrit said...

Yes. I read it earlier. I went for hair cut on Friday and something happened. I was out over the long weekend and did not get a chance to write. Finally I put it last night :))) Thanks for being always my good friend.
