Distraction

Pouring rain is so much prettier
Than staring at a laptop screen,
It takes your mind to green places
That may be unvisited, unseen.

My mind's divided as I alternate
Between laptop and window in turn,
If I look out the window I’m rejuvenated;
If I look at the laptop I earn.

Sheer distraction - the scene outside the window- clouds , rain,more clouds,crows,trees , breeze , a blue sky and cloud towers, sunset - more clouds now streaked with gold - how do I work ?

Indeed the promise of unvisited, unseen places! How our mind travels even as our bodies cannot. And love the rhyme: turn and earn :) What an unresolvable conflict.

Eve's Lungs: Exactly. Gorgeous description, by the way.

Suku: Wish I actually could.

Dipali: I am!

Seeker: It's quite a conflict. The window wins more often, though!
