Thanksgiving Alone

Dawn, cold November
Snowflakes blanket a grey sky
Wet firewood smokes

Warm hearth’s gatherings distant
No footprints lead to my door

  1. There are times when alone and lonely do not equal out.
    And many are thankful for that time any day it does happen.

    There is a peace to this piece that reads ‘I’m OK’, I can communicate when I want, if I want.

    (The ‘net’ gives us more ears sometimes than we want…)

    1. All true, Jules. Each one’s circumstance gives it a different meaning. Someone from a chaotic environment all of the time would probably pay good money to get a piece/peace of solitude, where the ordinarily person of solitude might feel a twinge of loneliness.
