The Freeze

I froze.

Waited and waited for the sun to set and for the “Christmas Star” to rise yesterday.

Found it.

Marveled at it in appropriate child-like awe.

Readied my wish for the once-in-a-lifetime “star” –

And fumbled.

OCD’ed over the whole thing.

Wish for world peace? The pandemic will continue.

Wish for world health? War.

Wish for world happiness? Some people’s ideas of ‘happiness’ are truly horrifying.

So, I copped out.

Asked for “guidance” and scurried back inside with tail firmly between legs.

I mean, who muffs up a wish?


No wonder the world hasn’t seen my tail in years.

Until tomorrow…
