Happy Thanksgiving… #MLMM #Wordle 297 #Poetry

Don’t do it, don’t count 
the droplets on your window
Wait for the family to arrive
They are an unexpected gift in life
A reason for thanksgiving, for celebration
I brush away the dark reality
where the black butterfly lives
In my head, tormenting my waking hours
Vigorous dusting of my thoughts
took longer than I expected
I decided to make the day memorable
Finally, I can predict a happy new year…

here are the two words for this week:

“End & Hurry”



can I

See beyond

The grey veiled edge?

tomorrows bright light

warning remembered, I

hasten towards a blue orb

silently spinning in mid-air

My thoughts rustle like leaves yet to fall

Now I know how angels are born to us…
