SoCS ~ Jusjojan2023 ~ 1-14th

‘Once upon a time’
Stories galore intro line

Dysfunctional childhood
Thought twas bad, not good

Santa forgot me every year
Disappointment, followed by tears

When became a wife, then mother
Vowed thy children would ne’er suffer

Pangs Christmas view no tree nor presents
Parental role, constant belief God omnipresence

Youngster forever  prayed for fashionista doll
Now via app play dress-up with avatar Michelle

Word of the Day ~ Humidity

Wi-fi down
Water brown
Summer resident hometown

Humidity, water vapor
Fluctuates according to temperature
Sultry day difficult find breath of fresh air

Season forward look fun activities
Outdoors face health risk possibilities
Remain indoors old folk, surpass liabilities

Thoughts wander, recollection prime of youth
Life in reverse definite appear quite nice, smooth
Pleasurable memories, lots of stories, untold truths

A Letter a Week ~ O

Place: outdoors 
Adjective: opportune
Emotion: overwhelmed
Verb: observed
My animal: Snowy Owl

once in a lifetime opportune moment
winter night, backyard sounds broke silence

unfamiliar noise appears¬†be an owl‘s cry
outdoors quite overwhelmed soon identify

perched high amid snow-covered forest pines
beauty, pure white Snowy Owl features shine

to observe this vulnerable species so rare
handle camera and binoculars great care
