|"My Story" by Karina Llergo (used w/ permission)|
Life is looped and slanted, scripted some say,
within God's eye long before we are born.
If so, He loves a mystery or at least witnessing my journey
of stutters and stops, chapters replayed,
reread, so to speak, longing for wisdom
from heartbreak, cliffhangers, melodrama,
in search of a place for my soul to take root,
drink life fully, unafraid of close inspection.
For isn't that what we do upon finishing our last line?
Decipher whether or not we fulfilled our purpose,
content with our story?

This is linked with "Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - Bits of Inspiration, My Story" and

A quick interpretation of the image above and the word "longing". Two prompts in one, about ten minutes of writing. (Most likely this poem will be reworked a bit)
Thanksgiving is here as the family comes together today and we have the whole weekend to celebrate and miss those who couldn't make it home.
I wish you all who celebrate Thanksgiving a wonderful holiday and those who don't, I wish the same!
