Birthmas sestina - December 2021
Allison’s `birthmas` wish list called for a Satellite
Phone so she could go camping in the Wild.
Her mother would sleep better with such a Connection
Always possible. How often does Allison Explore?
Usually a week or two a year with her current Work
Schedule so buying a unit didn't seem too Practical.
Moneywise it would seem more Practical
To choose from among the rental Satellite
Units. If her job requirements changed, Work
Might allow for more time in the Wild,
Or on the other hand, even less time to Explore
So the demand could vary for this type of Connection.
If the demand was for more Connection
Time, then the cost/benefit might make it more Practical
To review the purchase options and Explore
The real system services that such a Satellite
Phone would provide while out in the Wild
Or around, whether for play, or for Work.
With college admissions her current calling for Work,
The summertime is the ‘offseason’, so maintaining a Connection
When camping in the woods, or deep off the road, and in the Wild
Doesn't seem to be a major work factor. Some other Practical
Work calling could change the need for such a Satellite
Phone but we’ll cross that bridge or Explore
The options presented when the need to Explore
Is raised to a current requirement; that is, If her Work
Actually changes. In the meantime, a Satellite
Phone will remain elusive until the Connection
To a scheduled trip to the outdoors makes it Practical
And a periodic rental will be enabled to tame the Wild.
Let’s be clear, her mother’s wishes are not Wild.
Mothers nature is what it is and for Allison to Explore
Can run counter to the Practical
Desire of her mother to care and Work
For her children at all times. So a Connection
Can be helpful albeit expensive if by Satellite.
Hence, in Practical terms, a pending trip to the Wild
Raising the need for a Satellite phone to carry and Explore
Whether for Work or play, should prompt a parental Connection to execute this gift.
For those interested in what a "sestina" is, I used the following to come up with the format used here:
