Carrying her child, A mother walks past smiling – She tastes the future.

Peace:

Now the storm has passed, Underneath a painted sky – The sound of carols.

Antidote:

A huge moon rises, Painting the sky patchwork gold – Christmas lights flashing.

Anticipation:

Leafless rowan tree, Overflowing with berries – Looks strangely naked.

Reflection:

On the dark river, A shimmering streak of gold – Below the bare trees.

Winter Fair street party:

Mince pies and mulled wine, A community heartbeat – Providing the heat.

Metamorphosis:

Bins lie on their sides, A white plastic sheet flies past – A thing of beauty.

Instinct:

A ladybird climbs, Towards the warmest corner – Slowly but surely.
