Poetry Day 25

October 25, 2013

Day 25: Celebration/ My next celebration will be...

Time to Celebrate
Celebrations galore
There are so many more.
One of my nephews (cousin's kid) his birthday party is going to be at...
wait for it....
CHUCK E CHEESE!!! I understand I may be too old for Chuck E Cheese,
but when you are older... it's 10 times more the fun.
It's where a kid can be a kid.
May I be a kid again, please?
Some kids will also run.
I get to ski ball, that' s my favorite.
Chuck E doesn't bite
Keep that in mind.
Tokens, Tickets, and Prizes.
The day is full of surprises.
Let's not forget the family, pizza, and cake.
This day, many memories will make.
Next, Thanksgiving.
We usually do the whole sha-bang.
It's the entire family gang.
The turkey, the stuffing.
All day there is cooking, for the
green bean casserole,
Mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes along with
corn bread, corn,
and don't forget the cranberry sauce and gravy!
This of course is a dinner that is mighty heavy!
And pie: Apple, Pecan and Pumpkin
along with coffee & vanilla ice cream and of course
a ton of whip cream!
Everyone says what they are thankful for.
From youngest to eldest. It's a tradition
Some cry, down their cheeks the tears stream.
Last one wedding,
That has three separate events.
One reception for henna, music, and some dancing.
The guests are usually split among-st the women and gents
One reception, that is the actual wedding
The last reception, is to welcome the bride into the groom's family.
Wishing them to live ever after, happily.
Occasion after occasion, I realize how much
I have to be grateful for in the ending.
