Closed in, coat snugged.
Elegant ecstasies
Pillowed cascades of snow from trees
Soft falls

White light
Brighter than moon
Sparkling as Christmas day
Frost on berry red, ivy green
Leaves sharp

Ribbons, glass balls,
Silver tinsel, angels
Sit atop trees and view snowfalls

Like cotton balls
Quiet drifts, soft as down
Soft as children’s tiptoes on stairs
To see

Sleigh and reindeer
Stockings of fruit filled with
Dolls, books, movies, legos and tops
For them

  1. Love all the sights and smells and sounds that December evokes
    hard to fit them all on a page
    you did it so well

    thanks sweetie

  2. I like how you took a season, a color, an object, or a characteristic and drew out of it the many associations we make with Christmas. I can hear “December” in the background.

    • Thank you. I didn’t spend as much time as I would have liked. It was a 30minute or so whip up but I liked the crown cinquain…teehee. There’s some Christmas magic in the number five (following the number two, of course 😉 Have a wonderful holiday!!!
