November 25, 2012 Sunday Whirl #84

Wordle  #84  :  Still, scent, sight, fell, fleck, sway, load, heap, skimmed, held, end, fill

 

The Scent of Thanksgiving

Fills the air

Every nook and crannie

Found myself swaying

To the holiday music

Remembering sights

And sounds

Of other holidays

Long ago

Lost in reverie

You were all there still

Held each one in long embrace

The scene inside my head

Heaped with emotion

Only a fleck of reality

Fell into the morning light

The wagon loaded

Horses hitched

Skimmed the fat

From the broth

In memory

World without end

Note:  It seems to me, the holidays are not as they were.  And there is a certain sorrow for all those who have gone before.  I miss them all.  This makes sense, since nothing stays the same and all things change.

  1. i def understand when the present does not meet the past…we also though tend to glorify the moments in the past and the rough spots lose their edges…the empty places though are a constant reminder though of those we have lost…and that is def hard…mostly new seats at our table this year but our time will come…

  2. Memories (good ones) can be a delicious and everlasting feast..long may they last..the painting reminded me of ‘American Gothic’ but maybe a bit cheerier! I hope you had a good ThanksGiving even if it wasn’t quite the same..Jae x

  3. Interesting. I distinctly remember commenting on this earlier when it first appeared in my ‘blogger,’ but I must have been dreaming. Holidays do trigger those memories of earlier holidays, don’t they? Nostalgia — as we eat the old familiar family foods. And sad how many family members are no longer at the table. Fine wordling, Annell.
