Happy Thanksgiving (for all people who celebrate Thanksgiving)! For all people who don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, happy fourth Thursday of the month of November. Unfortunately, we had to call off the Thanksgiving trip we had planned to Ohio (some last minute kid sickness), but we’re still having a good time in Georgia. Have a great day, everyone!
For today’s prompt, write a gathering poem. The gathering could be a family gathering, but also about any other gathering–whether human or not. Yes, that really opens things up, doesn’t it? By the way, thank you, everyone, for constantly gathering here to poem. I am truly thankful for all of you.
Here’s my attempt:
Not everyone has a brother
who chases storms for a living or
a father on the Republican
primary ballot in New Hampshire
and who posts videos on Facebook
he tries to tie in with his topic,
which has something to do with orb rights
or the Mayan calendar, but most
people have family they can bear
for a few hours on the fourth Thursday
of every November as they
eat up their fair share of comfort food.
