Don't ask me why
but I truly 'love' left overs
and savor the after the holiday
items that remain in the refrigerator...
It tickles me to be able
to go to the frig and load up a plate
and zap it in the microwave
with turkey, dressing, corn, etc. etc...
So simply call me 'nuts'
if you must but I suppose it simply
reminds me of the past
and numerous family gatherings...
When the refrigerator was loaded
with so much stuff
we ran out of space
and creatively stacked things...
Oh, leftovers, how joyfully
do I sing in my heart
as I stuff things in my refrigerator
and stack, stack, stack food stuff...
Call me 'nutty', call me 'strange'
but all I ask is left overs
from a family gathering
and the joyful zapping of numerous meals...
Thanks, sister dear,
for bringing your sack of food stuff
so I can fill my refrigerator full
& remember numerous past seasonal gatherings...
