E- For excitement, eating, and ever-lasting holidays.
A- For Autumn's acorns appearing all over the sidewalks.
S- For squash, stuffing, scones, and smells that fill the kitchen.
T- For tenderness, turkey, tales, and Thanksgiving most of all.
Ode to Dragons
When the first light of morning
peeks through the cold, gray mountains,
a sleek figure
emerges from the dark shadows below,
rushing through clouds
faster than a hawk.
Pausing for a moment
to admire her scales;
bright and iridescent,
painting the sky with specks of golden light.
Then swoops down,
and just as she was about to hit the ground,
then thin membrances catching the wind
which slows her down suddenly
as she carefully landed
with a thud.
Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
Yesterday was a bad day
I was gloomy
pouting, dragging my feet across the ground
face red with annoyance
stomping past some bookshelves
Today is a day of regret
"Why did i do that?"
or:"I should have thought about that at first."
Now I cannot go back,
and I cannot change anything
only regret what I did.
Tomorrow is a new day
Who knows what lies ahead of me?
So I think about that
and fix my frown into a smile
because tomorrow will be a good day.
