Holiday Blessings #Etheree

True
moments
of joyous
celebrations
are the ones that bring
beautiful melodies
of sweet songs, brimming with love
wrapped with emotional delight;
magnificent gifts seem lusterless
in the gathering of a family.


Holiday blessings bring us together
Christmas tree shines brighter with laughter 
that resounds around the fireplace
to warm it with festive cheer
song of life sounds dearer,
lilting with a new
dawn to dispel
darkness and
welcome  
light.

Poet’s Choice #Shardoma

nimbus beams
and confers with Zeus
calls Nephele
Hyades meet
to provide relief from drought
we revel in rain

***

shrieking wind
continuous rain
vying all night 
To outshine
silvery sky watches calmly
clouds mingle with poise

Magic of Holidays

A fairy bringing holiday joy

My favorite fairy has arrived

With magic in her pockets

And loads of holiday love!

I can feel the thrill of

Her sparkling silvery powder

Mesmerizing me

With its fragrance!

She lifts me to carry

Into her enchanted world

Of stars, of peace

To recline upon her pillows

And soak in moments

of celestial joy.

Joy of Watching the Sky

Night sky

Weaving my way
Through the stars and their light
I gaze at your distant delight
Wondering when will you divest
The shimmering shroud of night

happy clouds

Joy was hanging in the air
I pocketed it and walked home
Now I look at him
In my moments of solitude
To warm my heart with gratitude

Love And Christmas Cheer

Christmas Cheer for all

If you are warm and loved this winter
If you can watch the gray sky
From your French windows
Or see the snow falling softly

If you can shut that cold out
Yet watch and enjoy it
With that fireplace glowing
And spreading radiant joy

If you have a loved one to hug you
With music of your choice
Yours is the day and this world
Full of Christmas cheer!

Wishing all my readers Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a wonderful 2018.
