It is Poetry Friday. I missed last week...just totally got by me! I have been cleaning and shopping, putting up a tree and unpacking, changing addresses and mailing the former owner's unforwarded mail to her.
I finally got my Swap mailed out. It is going to Australia,
to Erin Mauger, so it will be late-late getting to her! I've had it
ready and carried it about with me until I finally had the time to mail
I got Matt Esenwine's swap in the mail here! And I
can tell you that Granite State chocolate is amazingly delicious. I
may just have to go looking for some more online!
creation was no easy task... he sent was a found poem gleaned from my
Christmas season blog posts. Thanks for this capture, Matt! I love it!
"A Better Christmas"
It is snowing. Again.
In no hurry, we can wait
maybe a few days,
We can still celebrate,
take delight in the little things
pause, take notice,
appreciate them, remember
every day is cause for celebration,
a time for family, church,
listening to carols,
a gift to others
I might not have given otherwise
save for one
prayer, one thought, one memory,
There will be delight in the morning
scraps of Christmas
spirit, shimmer and sparkle.
Then it goes away until next year.

Time to go visit Buffy at Buffy's Blog and see what lovely December offerings have been gathered there.
Poetry will be hosted here next week as we end 2018!
