NaPoWriMo 2018-09 -- Day 9, another Poem for Fun



Waiting for. . . . . . . ;
   (a surprise)

O happy day for me
happy of happiests
I made a wish, big one
for sure it's coming true
Wished on a falling star
firefly in my jar

But I can't tell you what
just that it's coming true
Highest of the highests
high high my wish guru
Pledged to him secrecy
which means I can't tell you

Bigger than Santa Claus
more so than his Rudolph
Way larger wish than you
could ever imagine
Just wait and you will see
how my wish will come true

'I've got' my fingers crossed
threw salt over my back
Drank potent witch's brew
rabbit's foot for me, you
My big day is coming
we wait and you will see

Well of course you can't tell or it wouldn't come true. (Smile.) Sounds wonderful anyway!

Wished on a falling star

my wish guru

- such absolutely choice words to add the eagerness but necessarily secret nature of wishing upon ... and those lines wishing on a star/firefly in a jar - that is absolutely Amazing it its Grace!

Loved this piece Jim!

Lighthearted and playful as ever, Jim! I like how your narrator is so optimistic and confident that whatever he/she is waiting for will come. And I think it was a smart choice to illustrate that by listing all the things they've done to guarantee it comes to them. Well done and viva la!
