A-to-Z Challenge: January Hymn

2badge

Two challenges this month may have been too much, even under quarantine, since the realities of parenting and household maintenance don’t stop because of a pandemic (and as established, I do still have some work responsibilities, which can eat up a surprising part of the day).

That being said, I am caught up on NaPoWriMo, I just need to post, and I have yesterday’s A-to-Z ready to go.  I haven’t done today’s yet (though I know what I’m doing) and I full-on skipped my “I” entry, to return to it on Saturday when I have spare time.  I got a little overly ambitious with what I wanted to try and was not in the mental or physical/environmental space to actually realize it.  So, this weekend, we hope.

For now, a return to some simple microns.

January Hymn

On a winter’s Sunday I go
To clear away the snow
And green the ground below
April all an ocean away
Is this a better way to spend the day?
Keeping the winter at bay
What were the words I meant to say
Before you left
When I could see your breath lead
Where you were going to
Maybe I should just let it be
And maybe it will all come back to me
Seeing, oh, January, oh
How I lived a childhood in the snow
And all my teens in tow
Stuffed in strata of clothes
Hail the winter days after dark
Wandering the gray memorial park
A fleeting beating of hearts
What were the words I meant to say
Before she left
When I could see her breath lead
Where she was going to
Maybe I should just let it be
And maybe it will all come back to me
Seeing, oh, Janu…
Oh, January, oh
