And so we enter November. This year has wizzed by and left a vapor trail. If you look at the word, November could be translated as “New Ember” – a new fire. As the home fires burn and we approach the magic of the Holiday season, we’ll put the warmth back into our days with our worded wonder. Think in terms of comfort, an ember, a fire or something new. We’re giving you a free rein to go where these thoughts lead you! Cuddle up with your muse and use what the good Lord gave you!

COMFORT There is a coziness in comfort. A feeling most desired, a warmth that cannot be equaled unless you sit by the fire. Food can be a comfort, good to warm your soul. A kettle of stew or pot of soup, a hearty, steaming bowl. There's comfort in a warm embrace, from someone that you love, to nestle close there face-to-face, a blessing from above. The surrounding warmth of blankets wrapped to ward off chills, a sure and easy comfort that truly fits the bill. A child's smile, a present joy gives comfort to your heart, They feel the love and let it show, the perfect way to start. A caring friend when times are hard would ease your burdened life, A comfort in a time of need, could ease your troubled stife. I feel the comfort in my words, that offer hope and solace, and share them gladly with the world without a hint of malice. © Walter J Wojtanik - 2022
