Thanksgiving – #Senryu #TankaTuesday #Sorrynotsorry

group of people making toast

Rush food to table;
Enjoy the feast ’til last bite
But hate the banter.


This was written for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday #155, hurry and end (synonyms in bold). There was an alternative option to write about what Thanksgiving means to me so, since I am hopelessly allergic to interactions with a certain in-law, I wrote a wicked little senryu.

      Haha – I’m not very good at extended family gatherings. It’s either so stuffy with direst concerns about honor, or it’s plagued with competition. I’m usually fine with most relatives one or two at a time, but when you’re up to 5 or more? Ugh.
