1436 - Not pushing their weight.

Fewer & fewer.
The chooks enter henopause:
The retirement home.

1435 - Not bad.

Eat, drink, be merry.
For all the problems we have—
Life is pretty good.

1434 - No slave to duty.

Not my family.
I'll sit over here and read.
You can talk to them.

1433 - The Glums

A family lunch.
Time to forget and enjoy.
Determined not to.

1432 - Woe, woe, a thousand times woe.

Sullen, self imposed.
Wallowing in a pity,
Thickly, as in pitch.

1431 - Black Clouds.

Why so dull and glum?
You have come to visit us,
You could enjoy it.

1430 - Socially Distant Lunch

A post-lockdown lunch!
Suitably distanced, of course.
Bowing has returned.

1429 - Storms

Heavy midnight storms.
Thunder, lightning and rain.
Heavy, heavy, rain.

1428 - Somewhat magical

It's that day again—
The day I check the account
And money appears.

1427 - Alone together

It is a strange thing—
Living in isolation;
Alone with others.
