Countdown To Christmas: DAY 1

Day 1 

It’s December 1 and the start of my blog countdown to Christmas! And I thought I’d kick things off with a little festive poem:

Bright blurred lights twinkling

as if escaped from the sky above

captured stars, shining

across terraced roofs and trees.

Ribbons adorn every box and surface.

Tinsel draped across every chair.

Streamers flutter from the ceiling

Mistletoe placed for standing stares. 

Broken Umbrella (poetry)

That broken umbrella,


No longer in use.

You, are a sign.


You are a sign,

Broken Umbrella,

of the days

full of warmth.


Full of warmth,

our days growing longer.

As the world turns,

and brings back the sun.
