The wreath shines in winter light scarlet holly glowing slices of scented citrus glistening like stained glass even long-dried pinecones have a revived golden aura emerald fir and spruce branches hold everything together this natural bracelet a truly precious and priceless gift.

The robins and gulls were dancing around the garden this morning and last night eyes on the ground oblivious to each other beaks tapping on frozen ground percussive plundering but there was nothing to find.
Tonight when they return they will enjoy a bounty of seeds and nuts a festive feast from us to them.
Thanks for reading. I hope your weekend is going well.
Ephemeral, the silent snow drifts in shallow winter wind distinct hexagonal feathery flakes tumble like opaline dice over frozen baize lawns and rooftops of tile and slate the night gloam has been dispelled in its place a glistening silver glow has taken root floating upwards toward the heavens.
Thanks for taking the time to read my poem today. I hope you enjoyed it
What are your thoughts on snow? Let me know in the comments..
Frosted rooftops glinting in the lazy low winter sun tiny footprints of the blackbird stand frozen in time if only for a moment the chimneys sigh giving the milky blue sky its only clouds for the day the stillness feels safe the stillness feels peaceful the stillness feels hopeful.
I can’t believe it’s already December 10th. Only two more weeks worth of poems in this years advent calendar. Have you had chance to read many of the collection so far?
Holly berries gleam
in the bewitching winter blue-light
ruby red and alive
held tightly in the arms
of emerald flames burning darkly
all along the hedgerow
to live with passion
