Twelve Months

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is inspired by T.S. Eliot’s words from Wasteland: “April is the cruelest month.” We are asked to write about the month we hate the most!

But as I go through the months, particularly as they transpired in my life last year, I find that the most challenging months also have some endearing qualities. Not being able to pick a least favorite, or even a most favorite, I decided to write about all of them.

 

January
creamy white snow smothers
my colorful Christmas comforts

February
savoring winter solitude
but am I anyone’s Valentine?

March
spring begins amidst the snow
but it’s hard to tell

April
nature’s nascent growth
means wicked allergies

May
school ends and children play
with raucous abandon

June
Summer Solstice
declares victory

July
such irony, dammit
homebound on Independence Day

August
the happiest, sunniest month
spews the most miserable allergies

September
family birthdays
time to be thankful

October
precious great-niece arrives
God’s most amazing gift

November
friends remind me
I am not alone

December
God blessed us with a Savior
time to celebrate His love
