Sunday morning quiet, with closed bedroom blinds and curtains.
Cars sit in concrete drives... waiting for manic Monday.
Fit, young men gather together their football gear.
The pleading of church bells... ring in hope,
As the religious gargle in bathrooms, in order,
To be of the finest voice for hymn and psalm.
Young lovers snuggle warm and repeat last night.
Children beg breakfast and attention.
Cats come home with tales to tell.

Soon, buckets of soapy water will wash cars.
Lawn mowers will glide over grass.
Joggers will jog, to the sounds of their choice.
Mothers will be tied to the roasting kitchen,
And the town will breakfast...

on these Sunday rituals.

The Routine of the Mundane Part II
The rituals of our lives...
Are the chains of our lives...
And makes for a very short leash

Sunday in my Town
Comment of a great man comes to my mind
Holidays come like kings and go like beggars
Here the poet has interestingly narrated
And he does it by taking us on a joyful path
He must have written this on a pure Sunday
As modernity is giving us no time to rhyme.
