Red-letter day

 A red day – lettered is
A day that is lettered in red is
A day to be treasured
To gathered up and pondered on
In my life, red letters have a different meaning
Midnight flits
Hiding behind the couch
Till the rent man departs
Buying on tick again and again
Existing on less and less
I entered a time of jubilee
Where no debt was held
And no debtors were found
I live in that space.
I live in a space where my bills are paid
So grateful for all I receive
Food on the table
And a roof overhead
Never did I think I would see
A red-letter once more.
The postie delivered one today
it sits on the mantle waiting
for the conversation of redness
round and round the merry-go-round
and wonder will we need
to flit once more?
