Miss You

Family reunion yesterday

The numbers are dwindling every year.

Where’s so and so?

And why didn’t he or she make it?

Some are too old and feeble to join us.

Miss you

Feeling Blue

Feeling, blue–

someone has

let me down.

My heart is

heavy.

There’s

a lump

in my throat.

I may have

to cry to

release

what’s inside.

My expectations

set me up

to

bring

me

down.

My Sunday 160.



 

Hot Cup of Cocoa

Cocoa w/ Marshmallow

The wind is blowing briskly and

the temperature is plummeting.

My nose is a bright, red cherry

and my hands are feeling chilly.

A hot cup of cocoa is vastly needed.

My Sunday 160.

No Fun

Passport

My daughter’s going to China.

I said goodbye yesterday.

My wish of love and safety are with her–

thirty meetings in five days–no fun, no sightseeing, no playing.

My entry for Sunday’s 160.


I’m Back

Returned home from my trip.

Twelve hours straight of driving left me strained.

What happened to my relaxing vacation?

It’s back at the lake house in North Carolina.

My Sunday 160

Almost Ready

Almost ready for my trip

Packing furiously around the clock.

Don’t forget the shampoo, bathrobe and socks–

If I leave anything behind, I’ll do with what I’ve got.

 

This is my contribution for the Sunday 160 challenge.

My Mala

Mala, Buddhist prayer beads.

My mala has one hundred and eight beads.

It keeps count as I chant–

Through my fingers it passes.

A cool little tool,

It helps bring me ease.

Mentally I intone–Om.

This is my submission for Sunday’s 160–inspired by Victoria.
