Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge!

Fun.
Christmas
Should be fun
All together
Family and friends
Celebrating as one
Sitting at a large table
Feasting on good food together
Seeing joy as presents are opened
Arms outstretched for those thankful embraces
Instead we're faced with indecision
Perhaps, celebrations, or not
Zoom calls instead of parties
not risking those we love
A tiny turkey
Just for us four
Simple times
You, me
Us

    I know, it is so difficult Ritu. missing my mum and dad terribly. Especiall, as mum had a fall recently and had to get stitches in her head. It just seems to be one thing after another and I feel so far away. Still, she is a strong lady (even if she is nearly 80!) and seems to have bounced back. Tough times, we just have to hope that 2021 will be a better year. Sending love and hugs, Marje x

    Hang in there, Sister. This year taught us to take a look at what’s really important and to appreciate those things we may have taken for granted.

    At least the usual holiday pressure (to put on the perfect dinner, or get the perfect present, etc) is off us! My Thanksgiving turkey is still in the freezer, and it may be there past Christmas!

      I bought a small turkey joint and stuck it in the freezer as we still don’t know our plans… But you’re right, the pressure to do a perfect dinner is off! (I don’t even have a dining table at the moment, as it’s been commandeered as a work from.home desk for my hubby!

    I can’t help but think this virus will bring us closer together. Your poem sure puts everything into perspective, Sis. You’re right, we must treasure what we have together. ❀
