November 30, 2011- Small Stones
Margo Roby Prompt- 11-30-2011-the acrostic
belated by Teri H Hoover
Born into this heart at high noon.
Into this heart, often filled with light.
Returning each year, with a sideways path.
To remember beginnings, I would rather forget.
Healed scars push at the tension-
Directly beneath the cake and presents.
Averting collisions with forced gifts and strangled wishes.
Yearning to go beyond that yearly reminder of a childhood
Another dark response to a lovely prompt- I am quite sure I will get over this phase soon. Another 50 years should do it.
