Turkey Pot Pie
Memories are sometimes
like holiday leftovers.
We pick them apart,
discard hurtful words,
sour looks, rolling eyeballs -
add a dash
of favorite vegetables, a few spices.
Create something that reminds us
of the laughter, welcoming tears
and warm hugs upon arrival -
even consider not brushing teeth
just so the flavor will linger
a little longer.

This is for Friday Flash 55 - a bit past the stroke of midnight - but we just got done playing a highly competitive game of chinese checkers. It's been a wonderful Christmas break, but I'm glad to be back challenging myself with poetry.
We all know, family and friends are the best part of holidays - but everyone together can be a bit challenging as well! May our memories shine bright :)
