Wishes

FullSizeRender-1

 

May you find family and friendship

May joy surround you

May you pause to recall beautiful memories

May you know love and belonging

May you be at peace

Wishing you the merriest Christmas.

Perfectly Imperfect

It is always thus

As the first flakes tumble

Strewn from the palms of angels

An endless repetition of a miracle

An aide-mémoire of you

 

I pause on the sidewalk

My eyes gaze heavenward

A trillion silent crystals dance

Reign down upon my head

 

Snowflakes whisper whirl

Frenzied, blowy, frozen tears

Of fancies and flight, sting

My lashes lower

A fall from grace, a blizzard of one

 

Now smudged memory

Garlands of bunting

Since wrapped round my heart

A broken paper chain of love

 

It is always thus

As the first flakes tumble

Strewn from the palms of angels

An endless repetition of a miracle

An aide- memoire of you
