Apologies for missing a day of my blog. I got paid. Dyed my mother’s hair before taking her to the store to buy milk. Drank and sang karaoke with my friend from out of town and paid a visit to some kitty cats and an old friend that I haven’t seen in a while who gave me a marvelous gift! Here is a poem I wrote to earn your forgiveness. Happy Holidays! More seasonal inspired material coming, including fun homemade gift ideas and pictures of snow from here in jolly old Iowa.
I breathed a sigh of relief hanging my head
by your Christmas wreath.
We could duet the way we would when we were
younger, remaining aloof, frame by frame.
Lenses between us:
add invisible strings to smiles.
So tired of pulling, trying to be
anything other than the way I am.
I ask, if just for now, keep me on your brain.
Soon, we might just get the chance to be the next in line.
