An Acrostic

Letting go of all future concerns, it was difficult for Edward.

Edward had a heritage of hard-working family who instilled a work ethic.

Gently, Elaine helped Edward to his favorite resting chair so he could enjoy the sunbeams.

Autumn and SAD

Autumn brings a change
when darkness comes too early
life can take a turn
SAD comes forth with depression
pleasures once known may be gone
sleeping may be more
energy waning, despite
dozing throughout night
slowing down movements and speech
restlessness, pacing, wringing
feeling less than worth
guilt taking over a life
concentration’s hard
forget making decisions
leaving feels as an option
it may start out young
but age is not the factor
more importantly
getting help is what matters

Padded – An Acrostic

Placing the filling in the pouch, she holds it in the palm of her hand.

Asking if it feels natural to her friend, she hands it over to the waiting woman.

Doubts run through her mind as she worries that this tender moment will cause her friend dismay.

Delighted with the weight and texture, her friend nods approval with a big smile.

Elated on one side of her emotions, saddened on the other, less seen, side of her emotions, she grins and moves in for a hug.

Dejected since the operation, she held her friend, gently at first before tightly gathering her close, knowing that only a true friend would understand and allow her heart to fill, true friendship is never padded with false intentions.
