Ask Me in December

Story 6/42 in The Forty Weeks challenge

By D. D. LeePublished 2 months ago Updated 2 months ago 1 min read

Don’t ask me about that

I’ve only just begun, It’s much too soon

There’s more to do, for me to see

We’ll talk about it after the year's final New moon


Ask me about my day

Whether I’ve written or not

If words came to me

Or if it was a day without


Ask me about my month

Some stuff I’ve been up to

A good or bad experience

Or another book I’ve read through


I’m wondering about the seasons

Spring, summer, fall next, and winter sure to follow

A baby, some stories, and time well spent

I want to make the best of my tomorrows


Then time will come,


Ask me in December

When my forty weeks are complete

If after all the hard work put forth

Every goal set, did I meet


This story is an entry into Babs Iverson's "Ask Me in December" challenge.
