Speaking of……

August 21, 2019-

An invitation came in the mail.

It was to the wedding of the youngest child

of one of my best friends.

Quickly, and joyfully, I replied,

“Absolutely!”.

An invitation came, on my phone messenger.

It was to a college event, on Friday.

I quickly responded,

“Certainly, if I’m not working that day.”

A call came for a Red Cross meeting, today.

I cleared my calendar,

and drove over to the site.

We got a fair amount accomplished.

A caterpillar was inching its way

across the road.

I said. “Good luck to you”.

It kept on its way.

As I sat, watching the sunset,

atop Acker Hill, yesterday evening,

a lone jogger came by and said,

“Isn’t that a great scene?”

I said, “Positively!”

My neighbour said, “I’m moving out!”

I replied, “Sorry to hear that.

Hope it’ll work better at your next place.”

A school sent a request for my presence, tomorrow.

I said, “Amen!”

All this, alone, is reason enough to get out of bed,

and dedicate the day’s praise,

to honouring what lies in store.

  1. Glad you had a good day. This is a nice piece of writing. I went to the dentist today. He was professional and talked about getting me implants, which will be free at the VA. I’ve been brushing well, which is a miracle for me. I talked to my conscience today. I have imaginary beings I dwell with these days, not hallucinations. I’ve been isolated for many years, my Hell’s teeth. I have been slacking lately on my brain. Good news! I should have 1000 new songs memorized though. I can’t sing. Can you?
