Determined to do some work, I retreated downstairs for some peace.
I hoped to avoid the distraction of noise, and spend time alone with my thoughts.
Sitting at my desk, however, I heard some muffled peeps.
The children had found my retreat underground; I knew that I’d been caught.
Radiant little whispers echoed through the door,
And I heard my children hatch a plan to try to sneak inside.
Caught, I set aside my work, I could resist no more,
The chance to nest beneath my desk, and there to crouch and hide.
I saw my children enter, but they did not see me.
Over the desk I bounded with zest, and the children squealed with glee!
Never regret the time you invest creating sweet memories.
This is a devotion to Father's Day, and a response to the prompt to write an acrostic poem using the word “DISTRACTION”.
Thank you for taking time to read and comment!
