Life Scrabble


Shoved hand

in silver bag,

thick plastic,

dark inside.

Feeling for

something good,

hard wood.

Something to

make sense,

shed pretense:

life jumbled

by letters,


Little squares,

totaling three,

Q,Y, and Z.

High value

hands cost,

if lost

in reverie,

in scrabbling

at uncertainty.

Winning requires

mental dexterity,

emotional simplicity

to shed

what’s expected,

to use

two-letter words

or three.


Happy New Year, Everyone!

Remember to keep it sweet and simple in 2016!
