Dusk Blessings (NaPoWriMo 2020)/Poem In Your Pocket Day

If I haven’t completely lost my mind, we’ve come to the end of this year’s NaPoWriMo—what a month it’s been!! 

And I’m fairly sure it’s “Poem In Your Pocket Day”…the poem I offered in 2013 follows the haiku.

Mother-of-pearl dusk

Silver’d gray-blue, faintest pink

Day o’er-flowed blessings

Poem in Your Pocket Day—2013

I keep a poem in my pocket,

More treasured than heirloom heart locket.

Words filled with God’s grace

Light a smile, wreathe my face—

Worst days, I’m still starred on His docket.

        1. I can certainly understand! 2/3 of the way through I felt I was starting to run on fumes–the last week I left the oven on all night (not knowing it)…and 2 nights ago, in an effort to consolidate meds (prescription refills poured into same med bottles, clearly labeled), I managed to mix up 3 different meds. So I spent the rest of the evening sorting them out into correct bottles–with help of online pictures of what each pill looked like. This was complicated by the fact that some drugs have different colors or shapes, depending on manufacture. It’s called not enough sleep–and Stupidity!! If I’m still here next April, I will choose ONE challenge–either NaPoWriMo or A to Z, not both 🙂

          1. Yeah, both was a lot. I’ve done them both before but never at the same time. Nearing 2/3 of the way through it started to feel like homework. I hate that feeling. Be careful with those meds.

            1. Yes, when it feels like “work” that’s not good. And being the conscientious type, I was trying to stay current with reading/commenting on others’ blogs…without sounding like I was “sleep-typing” 😉 And don’t worry–I learned my lesson re the meds issue! 🙂
