Home For The Holidays/ A Rhyme

 

 

a holiday 2When I was young and a holiday came round,

We chose a loved one’s home and all filed in,

Aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and beyond.

There was food to feed a nation,

a feast

Mushy, hankie called for kisses

And breathtaking, rib squeezing, too tight hugs.

Yet what everyone remembered upon returning home,

Was the kinship, the sharing.

Bringing one another up to date,

On spotlighted and tender moments within individual lives,

And the blessing of family connections.

Today there are new faces, joined with the old,

All giving thanks for tightly woven bonds.

Celebrating the Creation of You/ A Short Birthday Rhyme

a colt

 

Somewhere there is a new born colt wobbling to his feet for the first time and a tiny wren breaking through his shell. Probably they will never know this day is your day too.

a dew

Yet today the dew dropped more perfectly upon the earth, the mighty sun rose higher in the sky and the morning glory opened sweeter because it was your birthday.
