I Have A Sink Full Of Dishes

Updated on April 9, 2015

And That's All I Have

Shiny spoons and a glass butter dish

Glasses and bowls facing every direction

A bright green plastic cutting board placed on the top

Of a mountain of dishes

If they could see

They would say

I love the view

Waiting for the first person to pass bye

if they could talk

They would say

Would you be so kind

To lend a hand

Dishes don't clean themselves

You are the built in walking dishwasher

What a great reason to dive right in

Get your hands wet

Sometimes water ends up

Half the counter and part of the kitchen floor

My wife yells easy Killer

Save some water for the dishes

Add some liquid soap

A little crusty food left inside the Pyrex casserole dish

Comes off with a little scrubbing

Don't forget the pans on the stove

One by one you will make them go

      Harishprasad I make my whole life a game and what makes me the happiest is I get to play day after day. Who could ask for more when I have friends like you that make each day so great.

      Dream On, there is a proverb in Hindi that means where the sun is unable to penetrate, a poet arrives there with ease. In this poem, you have done such a remarkable feat. Sometimes, I wash dishes. These verses have made dish-washing a pleasing game rather than a routine mundane chore. Voted up.

      Jodah It's so nice to meet another friendly dishwasher. We are so lucky we are always in demand. More we eat more dishes to wash.MsDora Many times I think I am all done then I see one more pan. Then I start scrubbing and washing again.Michael-Milec If we look at every day with a little humor we can smile our day away. Thank you all for reading and commenting. With the dishes done we can now have more fun.

      "Don't forget the pans on the stove" after we finish with the dishes in the sink, and we begin to exhale thinking we're done. That line is a call back to reality.

      Oh how I relate to this Dream On. I am the dishwaher in the house and it is amazing how fast they can pile up epecially if we have visitors. A son offered to buy us a dishwasher but I declined the offer, I much prefer to do it by hand. Good poem here.

      Annart We all love to eat but after all the cooking nobody wants to help in the clean up. I make it a good habit to relax then an hour later I jump right in and make it fun. From filling up the sink with lots of suds to scrubbing and singing make believe songs. I am a volunteer dishwasher. I do them all the time . Thank you for reading and sharing.

      I think we can all relate to a pile of dishes in the sink. Well, maybe most of us. This poem was fun and validating, DREAM ON. Thanks, voted up.
