Good morning! I am having a hard time believing that October went by so fast – well, at least it went by fast for me anyways. It has been only a couple of days, and already I’m hearing Christmas music playing in stores. My store has had some Christmas items on the floor for at least week already! Geesh, in a few years time they’ll be selling Christmas items by September at this rate. As much as I enjoy the holiday season, to me this isn’t really the holiday season just yet, and I know that all this extended Christmas merriment will just suck the fun out of the holidays for me. Hopefully I can keep enough holiday cheer to last me until Christmas, or I will be a total Scrooge.
Before I forget, I wanted to let everyone know that sometime very soon I will be creating a new page that I will keep updated very frequently about upcoming posts – just to keep you guys updated about what my schedule will be and to give you all a heads up for when to come visit! Hopefully it will be up by the end of the weekend *crosses fingers*.
As for poems, two as usual this week. Let me know what you think! And thanks for stopping by .
Dousing the Sunrise with Caffeine
Morning: my mug full of mocha flavoured brew,
Warm beams of sunlight; frost melts to dew.
Inhale the toasted, roasted, coffee beans;
feel the cool breeze through the open screen.
A book on my lap, slippers upon my feet,
robe loosely tied, my cat on the opposite seat.
A calming silence before the day begins to wake,
a few moments of bliss so pure I almost ache.
Call Cannot Be Completed As Dialed
A lifeless tone, resonating,
echoing within your ears -
the nearby street lamp shines,
sparkling with your tears.
“If you’d like to make a call
please hang up and try again” -
repeating, over and over,
caught within your brain.
You dial all the numbers,
dial all but the last.
How can you call home
after all that has passed?
Dangling lifelessly, the phone
frowns, calling you with its tone -
reminding you, that you made
the choice to be alone.
