When I was a child, I had a little lisp,
but now that I am older, my speech is bold and crisp.
I can voice my esses with no teeth pressed to my tongue.
I express myself more clearly than I did when I was young.
“Yes,” I say most clearly when my family asks for dough.
The only problem I have now is how to utter “No!”

I’ve had no electricity for almost 24 hours.  Need to get this up quickly, using my phone as a hotspot and a backup battery that is almost dead.  A day without a computer?  What will I do, folks?

The prompt today is crisp.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
