Cactus In My Pudding

Cactus In My Pudding

A Poem by D. Connolly
"

A bud fell off of my cactus into my pudding, waking me up from a lunchtime snooze

"

As I sat staring at a blinking screen

And blurbs started to blur and become uncertain

I started to drift into a little dream

Lulled by the smell of garlic hummus

And the beep of the printer in the hallway

But before my eyes shut for good

I heard a thump and noticed that a furry pod from my sulking cactus

Had fallen into my pudding.

"Cactus In My Pudding"

Electronic marvels that almost take a place
of humanness in our lives..
.present but so boring, so monotonous:
"As I sat staring at a blinking screen
And blurbs started to blur and become uncertain"
It is no wonder that fatigue found you.
"Lulled by the smell of garlic hummus
and the beep of the printer in the hallway."
Thank you for pulling me into this simple life day.
"I heard a thump and noticed that a furry pod from my sulking cactus
Had fallen into my pudding.
You know "sulking cactus is so fitting for this sleepy
and darling poem. Sleepy Dani and sleepy cactus.
Bless you and all your hard work. You write so nice and it shows!

A upset sulking cactus. Could be a problem. Interesting flow of thoughts led to good ending. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

Well, I suppose you do live in a place called Siesta Key, so we can't be surpri...zzzzzzzzzzzz... (head hits keyboard).
Great snippet of sharp observation. Made very sensual by the smell/sound details. I don't think anyone reading this could not smell that garlic and hear that printer.
The finale is fantastic. It's just richly amusing and interesting, a tiny moment of life, with a sensitive human observer there to capture it, and with the inclination to share the moment and the skill to do so. And then final line leaves me wondering...pudding? What sort of pudding?
Your little verse has the idiosyncratic wit and charm of a Gary Larson The Far Side cartoon.

Maybe the cactus sort of nodded off also. No cause to waste a good puddin'!
Glad you noticed it Dani. You might have ended up with a prickly pear growing inside you.

that would have been an awkward conversation with the doctor...
Hmm. Seems like someone was snoozing on the job! I certainly hope the boss doesn't read this!

Sulking cactus....a nice description!

A neat little write.

This moment in time, this reflection of the drifting place and the spoiled pudding, just comes alive, shared in such a way that we can see the disappointed look on your face. May you find something delicious in your dreams. :)

If I were to snooze at lunch (back when I worked full time in an office), I would never be able to fully awaken to the joys of work again that day *zzzzzzz* I like your simple down-to-earth poems about real life. Enjoy your cactus sprinkled hummus! *yum!*
