WARM WISHES
A post card of warm wishes:
When wintery winds whirl,
Twirling wan lips to fresco,
Echo of words relinquish their repeat,
Sleep, under blankets of snow ensue;
Few so few, are the leaves of green,
Keen though are firs and pine which seek,
Peaking over vast wastelands of snow;
Grow then, in the warm embers of hearth,
Birth of Springtime as hope to treasure,
Measure of nature is a well planned oath

Monday WRites 138



my hope:
in a harvest,
with blessings from my friends;
little miracles from the earth,
lemons.

❧✿❧

thriving:
choice lemon seeds;
cradled to time's bosom,
in a little ceramic pot
last year.

Quote from the internet
“I believe when life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade...and try to find someone whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.”

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
Twinkles off a thousand stars
in a dance of creation's tuning
meeting of spirit and mind twirl
like spiders to web design spinning

Seers of future molding realities
transports unseen to tangible form
music going on and on into distance
where upon tomorrow quells the storm

Of yesterday and further back
plugs them into the hope and care
of broken dreamers
piecing Christmas together as prayer

Writing Exercise (For Days of Little Time/ No Muse)
Karin's Challenge and rules [in a nutshell]: Take a letter, let a random word beginning with that letter arise in your mind, and then.... follow my other rules below!
(i) on your first draft, keep your pen (or typing digits) moving. (This is incredibly important if you are “making” yourself write.)
Also on this first draft: do not cross out; do not go back to fix; simply keep your pen (or fingers) moving ahead.
Keep the flow going for a certain span of time. Five minutes, ten minutes. It will be useful to set the time in advance. Do not make your time too long--ten minutes max
Now, you should have your first draft. Of course, you should feel free to revise it! You absolutely should revise it!
Keep in mind that the point of this prompt is really the exercise, not the particular theme.
So, first, remember that your piece does not need to have anything much to do with your letter or that word that came to mine. These are only jumping-off points.
Second, please try to use the technique to write something new,


MY EXERCISE GAVE ME THIS DRAFT:
When earth steals the twinkles off a thousand stars, and plugs them into the hopes and cares of broken dreamers, night mimics galaxies miles and unfathomable miles away, where only the seers of future molding realities like spinning spiders to web of design, transports the unseen to tangible form, thers is where at the edge of horizons meeting of spirit andmind twirl in adance of creations's tuning, the music going on and on far into the distace of yesterday and back to tomorrow

Monday WRites 136

[all images in this mosaic found at Pinterest]


JOY
We wait in joy for his being born
Saviour of the world so well sworn
Eyes peeled watching for that star
Once wise men followed from afar

He comes again to bring that hope
Just when we think we cannot cope
Dare we forget his holy sacrifice
Already is paid redemption's price

What a wondrous season of longing
We endure a new sense of belonging
To kingdom gathered under His wing
His salvation wisely then to cling

Thus the cause of great and lasting joy
Our hearts a manger for this baby boy

YIN AND YANG
Such is being yin and yang
As moon rises so is setting sun
Winter climes shudder in December
Non such weather here to us encumber
Rum guzzling parrandas in their twang
Heart songs pour out with so much fun

We all acknowedge this cause of joy
A son given the-manger-born boy
On a star guided night long ago
We remember again with hearts aglow
YIN AND YANG © gillena cox 2017


Note

1. Parranda: a form of Christmas caroling unique to Trinidad and Tobago and some Caribbean and Latin American countries
2. [Isaiah 9:6] For to us a child is born, to us a son is given
