Tis the season for sugar and spice
Sweetening everything the way I like
It goes well beyond traditional pie
Flavoring coffee, cookies and popcorn?
Now that’s something I’ve gotta try
When days swiftly fade to night
We think about the coming fright
Plan our dress up to play pretend
It’s the beginning of this year’s end
Ready to pass by in a blink of an eye
Then it’ll be time to do it all again
Let’s examine the passage of time
That was wasted in long lines to buy
Gifts picked for others as traditional trade
And consider giving something hand-made.
All words used: passage,other, line, trade and examine
Holiday meals prepare to take center stage
A study of seasonal ingredients handed down
Some altered to perfection by a culinary slave
*Words used: culinary, study
Nothing is free but freedom
Food, drinks and conversation
Family and friends
Of a great nation
Plastic bag clouds float by revealing a clear, bright blue sky. The sun now shines in your eyes lighting up the night. Elevated and accelerated soaring like a bottle rocket; moves so quick one might think I had firecrackers in my pocket. Light the spinning flower to see colors bloom.
Have a Happy, Safe and Sane 4th of July!
~A fifty word story
This Christmas season
I wanted to be the Grinch
Again, I held out
Started having some regrets
That lead to power shopping
