I'm not Crazy, Just Creatively Insane


Finding my inspiration through the voice of music and poetry. Being creative and finding ways in making life easier and smarter for others.


I've spoken about this with the microwave

Told me, its wave after wave things will simmer down

And start to behave,

Don’t get me started about the toaster

Told me to respect my coffee and use a coaster

I mentioned to the washing machine

She puts a spin on everything

Says a lot of things remain unseen,

All will replenish

Be patient and allow the cycle to finish

The fridge acts all cold and distant

I wouldn’t bother saying anything norh be persistent,

Oh Ruby, my dear friend, gem and soldier,

Between the freezer and I ,

You could feel the tension slice

It never offered to break the ice,

I did however, continue to keep my composure

The freezer then gave me the cold shoulder,

Gosh, you are

Really worse than the toaster

The iron tried to straightened things out

No situation is too pressing ,

As for the vacuum,

It was down right all depressing

Told me to just suck it in,

For nothing you are stressing,

The fan was more optimistic

Said it will all blow over don’t be pessimistic

The toilet seemed flushed and flustered,

When I asked its opinion

Wasn’t in the mood so ignored me,

Not a word uttered

Thought you were my companion

In the end, the curtains,

I thought was forthcoming, but as I came close

Told me to pull myself together.

Shut the front door!

Well, wasn't that a very rude awakening!

What do you think?

We most certainly do, am so glad you included me in part of your path. The first thing I always look for, is Ruby's words.

Stay blessed, take care and be safe.

hahahahah, Thanks Denise,

Good call, but too many pressing issues currently, it will soon straighten it all out.

I shall be sure to have another one on one and make certain of that...

As for the door, its lips are sealed until further notice.

Appreciate your comments always

Take care and be safe

I chuckled. I love that the iron thought it would all straighten out! Don't take the front door to heart. It always shuts things out!



Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on April 06, 2020:

Thank you for the kind remark. We certainly have a connection, I felt it the first time we met. Please stay safe my friend.

Hi Eric,

Great to hear from you. Thanks for revealing, we all go through it... yes.... the talking to no one in particular but you looking in the direction of your microwave or fridge hoping for some advice, we just don't say it to anyone ;)

Remember the precautions, no hugging, it's the elbow greet or the dab I like to call it ;)

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 05, 2020:

Sorry I did not laugh one bit, except at myself. I thought everyone did it until my ten year old told me it was crazy. Maybe I should just keep it in my head. Is hugging alright?

Mitara N (author) from South Africa on April 03, 2020:

Thank you my dear Vidya, your precious and valuable words mean a lot.

The course of all thats going on, you can't help but think your appliance to be a friend, lol, the one or two of them have their tantrums, but I think I managed the conversations effectively.

Appreciate you always, take care and be safe.

VIDYA D SAGAR on April 03, 2020:

What a beautiful personification, Mitara. It is at times such as these that we value our appliances, which otherwise we don't give much thought to. A thoroughly enjoyable read, thank you.

Mitara N (author) from South Africa on April 03, 2020:

My wonderful friend ruby I was awaiting your visit and expert advise.

Ah, Yes..... the freezer, well I found it quite intimidating, thought if I mentioned it, I will be approached with the show of the middle popsicle stick, maybe I needed the intervention of a freezer whisperer.

Now that I got you as back up, this one's for you.

Stay as awesome as you always are.

Take care and be safe

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on April 02, 2020:

I think you are an excellent rhymer, and this was very clever. Because we're practically housebound, I can envision talking to my appliances, but I bet the freezer would give me the cold shoulder. lol

Mitara N (author) from South Africa on April 02, 2020:

Thank you Liz,

Thought it would be nice to bring a touch of humour to counter the anxiety and stress going on.

Your comments are always appreciated

Take care and be safe

Liz Westwood from UK on April 01, 2020:

I love your original and humorous spin on our current situation.

Mitara N (author) from South Africa on April 01, 2020:

Lol, just when you feel you've heard it all. Don't under estimate the power of appliance.

Then too, maybe it's was a special kind of coffee, hahahaha

Appreciate your comment Kyler

Kyler J Falk from California on April 01, 2020:

I think I need to buy me some of these talking products! Where do I pick them up? hahahaha!

Very funny and cleverly written, Mitara!
