Every day celebrates some life event.  Some officially and others just because. 
In this thread write a spontaneous celebration in verse for whatever day you happen here.   
Theme, form, and length are your choice.   
Let's celebrate living with our words.

July 2, 2023  World UFO Day

Who Are They?

Below the stars, they hover,
watching, waiting to discover 
who we are and what we do,
adjusting to get a better view.
With antennae on their heads
they scan us sleeping in our beds.
It seems so far, they mean no harm
but, we may be their future farm.

A new silly Verse Form, The Footle.  Found on the internet, a rhymed couplet with mono trochaic lines. It's the rhyming that makes it difficult.

Today is July 4th, Independence Day

 

Diamonds in the Sky
 

BBQ meats on the grill.
salads, cake, and corn,
Come on, eat your fill.

It's the Fourth of July 
and tonight diamonds 
will explode into the sky.

Birthstone, birthright,
Freedom in plain sight.

A few days late for Winter Solstice

2023 #37

timid winter sun
peeks out from behind grey clouds
off grid, sun power
