I took up the challenge this year to make a blog post every day. At first, it sounded like an easy task, but I soon discovered it more challenging than I ever imagined. For part of the year-long adventure, I explored different styles of poetry. I decided to revisit many of these styles in November. NaNoWriMo takes up most of my time during this month. Plus, the weather turns cold, making it hard to go on an adventure. Today is Thanksgiving. The poem I wrote to celebrate the holiday is called Movable Feast.
Measure the sugar and the flour
Objective for the movable feats
Victuals of tradition for all to devour.
Assembly all the family under one roof
Basic ingredients necessary this time of year
Leaving behind all the confusion and fear
Ecstatic to be together again
Furrows in the cornfield now that the harvest is done
Expressways crowded with people heading home
And an autumn chill hangs in the air to kiss the skin
Shadows cast by the fireplace on a wood floor
Thanksgiving in our hearts, we can all be together again.
