Close the Door – A Quadrille

Close the Door

As the day ends
It is time to reflect
on events that were
less than perfect

Annoyances, delays
that did gnaw, irritate
To be tossed away
for it’s time to celebrate

Door closed
a day to forget
My glass is full
Wine’s my outlet

      This made me smile. I like the message of tossing away annoyances and regrets.

    One consolation: You don’t need a designated driver to get you home.

      Oh I found this in Spam too! I hope approving it will keep you out of there! I seem to be drinking a lot of wine lately. Don’t have to drive anywhere! Thanks for stopping by. Cheers 🙂

      Sometimes you just have to slow down those racing thoughts ☺️

    Well…..late to the reading and it’s early morning here so I shall meet your toast with my coffee cup! 🙂 BUT if it were after 5 PM, trust me, I’d be clinking your wine glass with mine! 🙂 Stay safe.
