On Advent – V: Artificial Perfection

As a child
We trudged through snow
In search of the perfect tree
Face frozen – thumbs numb

At last
One was chosen
Cut, dragged, secured, and off. we. go.
Trudge, trudge, trudge, trudge

I cannot
Feel
My face
Or hands

They thought
They were
Making
Memories

And so they were.

Now
I open a box
Three pieces and a stand
Plug it in – done.

Perfect?

#SoCS comes from the website of Linda G. Hill.

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
