Planly wrapped

Photo by Natalie Dmay on


My favorite seasonal holiday

Is now laced- with an odd shadow

On its eerie peripheral surrounds

Like an unwelcome looming storm

Waiting just to pounce- unexpectedly

And that once robust centric fire

Has dampened in chiller mountains

And echoes of times ago are impotent

There are many with good intentions

That whisper out for my good fortune

Chiller winds seem to crystalize them

As they slowly cling to hanging icicles

Along the bottom of snowy roof edges

Hitherto signifying that… love is a gift
