Longing

For Poets United midweek motif: Longing. It’s rather interesting because if I had tried to write this yesterday, the poem would have been completely different. 


My longing is sated for today:

Thanksgiving Mass to laud

The God from whom all good things come,

Friends to join in with worshipping,

Many songs to sing;

Unexpectedly happy times with family

As we play games

And laugh at random stories —

Before we feast on turkey

Cranberry sauce and mac and cheese,

My longing is sated for today.
