Cleaning Lady Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla


She knows
Where the dirt settles

She knows
How to clean

She knows
How to wet the floor

Polish knob on the door
She also knows
Reach of the broom

Power of the vacuum

For sure she knows
All her business

And how to clear
The mess.



In chaos
I see order

And I know how
the world moves
Dynamics of dirt

I know not
And how things get rust

It’s hard for me to handle

All these
In a timely way.



At her hands

Faucets sparkle

Her touch turns

House into home

And my response’s
A show of happiness
Smiles will then
Light up the face
Day will become
Shiny and bright.
