The stores are open

November 29, 2013

The stores are open
today, today,
the stores are open today.
The shoppers rush
every which way,
to find treasures,
get in line and pay.

But the lines
can be very long
as you stand
listening to many a
Christmas song
telling you to be
full of holiday cheer
’cause it’s the
best time of the year.

But you may
not feel so cheerful
as the line moves
at a trickle,
and you’re second
guessing the breakfast
choice of turkey n’ waffle.

But, still, the line and
days will move onward,
as there are traditions
to be gathered,
within each something
to be savored,
especially with a
deep breath of calmness
amid the crowd
bustling and boisterous.

    Oh you have a much better attitude about those lines than I do. 🙂

      Maybe because I’m not in long lines very often that I’m okay with it. (But I avoid stores on Black Friday, though!)
