All In A Day's Work

deadlines... urgent calls...
stack of papers on my desk
manic day at work

bring it on, i say
opting for vicissitudes
over stagnation

rest entices me 
coffee break is most welcome
all in a day's work

some people thrive on this kind of what I consider stress...however, I have never been one of them...

Brian Miller October 28, 2012 at 10:55 PM  

it is nice to get to those breaks...i like being busy though...keeps the day moving...

Hee hee, that desk looks like the desk of the elderly lady I provide home support for - she can turn a small room into a cyclone center in an hour:) Thank heaven for coffee breaks, hey, kiddo?

Karen October 29, 2012 at 3:27 AM  

I agree that stress may be positive at times...some kinds of stress, anyway. That's where we grow, right?

Madeleine Begun Kane October 29, 2012 at 3:30 PM  

I enjoyed your haiku!

Bing Yap October 29, 2012 at 6:05 PM  

MMT, thanks for appreciating. :)

Bing Yap October 29, 2012 at 6:06 PM  

rch, i clean up once in awhile whenever a new deadline comes up. but it always ends up looking like that. lol. :)

Bing Yap October 29, 2012 at 6:07 PM  

brian, i try to keep myself busy all the time and when weekend comes, i claim my lazy sunday. that's when i get to appreciate what "relaxation" really means.

Bing Yap October 29, 2012 at 6:08 PM  

hi sherry, wish we can have coffee together... it would really be nice to share a light moment with you. :)

Bing Yap October 29, 2012 at 6:10 PM  

karen, it all depends on how we take things. but yes, there's opportunity for growth in every situation. thanks.:)

Bing Yap October 29, 2012 at 6:10 PM

One hopes that the work is enjoyed.....even though there is a 'mountain' of it!

Thanks for participating in Poetry Pantry. I am a bit late in making my rounds! Time for a 'coffee break' now. LOL.

Jenn @ You know... that Blog? October 31, 2012 at 4:51 AM  

I feel that stress! Sounds like you need a vacation... me too! Well done :)

Bing Yap November 1, 2012 at 4:34 PM  

Heaven, Mary and Jenn,

Thanks for spending that "break" here... Much appreciated! ♥

Madeleine Begun Kane November 15, 2012 at 5:08 AM  

Well done, and a perfect companion poem for that photo.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
