Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure to visit Buffy's Blog for roundup.
Today starts my Christmas internet break, but before I go, I've got two oldies but goodies for you... one specifically about the winter solstice, and the other about writing in winter-- something I plan to do a lot of in the coming months! But, first: Christmas and travel and family and JOY! Wishing you joy today and all days... thanks so much for being such a lovely part of 2018!

No more hurry
Time now for firelight
for church bells
with the cold
inside of you
a kernel of courage

I love these! I'm especially fond of the last four lines of the first poem. Happy Solstice Irene! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
You sent me the Writing in Winter postcard once - and that phrase "unmittened heart" stuck with me. Perfect!ReplyDelete

Oh if only I looked that glamorous on the ice! Instead, I'm probably flat on my bottom, or clinging for dear life to the side of the rink. ;-)ReplyDelete
