The Bad News. Grey end to the year – World feels every mother’s pain, And every lost child. The Good News. Ring out the old year, Clouds rapidly cross the sky – Bells call us all home.

Squirrel eats a nut,  Buried in times of plenty – Unwrapped in great haste.

Consequences.

Streaks on the window, Reveal the wind’s direction –  Each breath leaves its mark.

Gossip.

Whispers on the wind, A bird sings out of season – Echoes distorted.

Indulgence.

Boxing Day morning, Early delicate flowers – Some the worse for wear.

Love.

A child’s love is pure, A mother’s love is divine – Great love is the way.

Silent night.

On a silent night, Half awake, the world awaits –  Light of a new dawn.

Abandonment.

No room at the inn, Christmas Eve seeking shelter –  Straw beats a doorway.

Togetherness.

Goldfinches chatter, Excited before the roost – Winter brings them close.
