Coffee With Mi

Mi, I toast you with a tumbler of freshly brewed kaapi!

Happiness Is a Mini Break

I was tired of my to-do list
It was so very long
I yearned to take time off
And listen to that song

I looked for ways to relax
And hit upon a plan
I ditched the list and spent
Time with my little man

No need to go out
To have a happy time
We could watch movies
Enjoying words and mime

Home sweet home is heaven
My feet comfortably up
Before I counted to seven
Here’s my coffee cup

A cozy nook all our own
To enjoy our mini-break
Happiness is five-star rated
There for us to take



Sharing is caring!

  1. Mini-breaks are great! Especially in the monotony of life and well, those extra-long to-do lists {which keep growing longer by the minute!}

    Loved the creative take on the prompt without the use of in-on-at! πŸ˜€

  2. At first I thought I had gotten the prompt wrong. Then realised you’d put your unique spin on it. Yes, we must do this. More regularly than we do now <3

  3. Vidya, I too had to go and check the prompt again! Is it with or without the prepositions? πŸ™‚ Then I realized it is after all your blog I am reading – full of creative ideas and interesting reads πŸ™‚ This was a fun poem to read, as a follow-up to your other blog about Lalbagh adventure! Wonderfully done.

  4. Brilliantly penned. Loved your idea of ditching the list to spend time with your loved ones.

  5. What a lovely poem and no prepositions, I did not miss them till you said you didn’t use any. Then I went back and read it again.
    Life is full of simple pleasures, if only we stop and enjoy.

  6. We have to break the repeated routine we often find ourselves doing daily. I enjoyed reading your lovely poem and thought it met the challenge nicely.

  7. Mini breaks are essential.. and if you are living with family there’s no need of anything else πŸ™‚ beautiful write.

  8. Hi Vidya,

    Five star rated relaxing times
    Let’s see if this rhymes
    A mini-break
    Relieves the ache
    Happiness is here
    It’s magically clear.

    Thank you for your poetry
    It pleases me πŸ™‚

  9. Great way to use the prompt Vidya. And yes no prepositions πŸ˜‰ Totally agree with the line – Home sweet home is heaven. Yes, as compared to the fatigue associated with traveling and sight-seeing in the sveltering heat, I would anyday prefer blogging or relaxing at home. πŸ™‚

  10. You have dropped ‘in’ , ‘at’ and ‘on’ and yet so creative. Once is awhile we should ignore our ‘to-do-list’ and enjoy.
