Poem of the Week: Thanksgiving 2018

Thanksgiving 2018
November 13, 2018

Turkey and dressing on the table,
Ham fresh from the oven,
Asparagus, yams, cranberry sauce…
Nutty buns, too, worth lovin’.
Kids and parents ‘round the table
Stuffing their mouths graciously,
Giving thanks to The Man Upstairs
In the wake of where they chance to be.
Vying for television control
In the living room that afternoon,
Nothing less than one more meal
Going back in the fridge soon.

Such are the memories I have
Of each Thanksgiving I’ve lived:
Traditions that’ve lasted a lifetime
With even more mem’ries to give,
And this Thanksgiving shan’t be diff’rent
As far as I can tell,
So here’s to another great Thanksgiving
For me and all of you as well.

Poem of the Week: Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time
November 4, 2017

Annual rewind
Falling, stalling, saving
Another hour for tomorrow
Resting, rejuvenating, recovering
Long day
