Holiday Migrations

thanksgiving eve day

the gatherings begin now

students scatter to

far flung parents’ homes

neighbors’ drives spill onto streets

christmas lights appear

Note:

Driving to the store today for last minute supplies for Mom, I notice that my young downstairs neighbors (students both) are gone.  There are a lot of students living in my neighborhood.  Other neighbors driveways are populated with out-of-state plates.

I’ll head out tonight for Mom’s in Hoover, 15 minutes down I 65, to help her and my sister with food prep for tomorrow.
