Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Life in Lockdown.
"Lessons learned" by Anuradha Dev
Sometimes in life
You just need to stop.
All the pressures, driving you
need to drop.
When forced to lay back,
You see the big picture.
All the stressful days
And sleepless nights,
You could have done without,
If only your wandering mind
You could withhold.
Daily grind of life
Can be mellow and hearty.
There is much joy in
Sitting home with the beloveds.
Small ventures like cooking,
Become recreation for the souls.
Those mirthful hours,
May not remain
But the sense of contentment
You feel now, should stay the same.

Author Notes
Need to stop and think.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
