|Morning Mist Lifting from a Plowed Field - Brastad, Sweden|
Greetings once again, Poets. I hope everyone is having a good week. So many signs of holidays around. One can't help but get in the spirit. Yesterday when I was walking around in a mall, there was one of the usual Santa Claus set-ups along with a photographer, of course. I couldn't help but smile though when I saw 5 children (from perhaps age 12 and down) cuddled up with this mall Santa in their seasonal pajamas. Perhaps this photo will end up on the family's holiday card.
I hope you have all seen (or read about) some joyful things this time of year. The other night when I took the dogs outside for the last time I saw several deer in the background, perhaps the same kind that will be pulling Santa's sleigh. And one more share: I read an NPR article about an Orthodox Jewish man who has been a year-around Santa for about seven years! Inspiring really.
Be sure to take time to read and comment on Rosemary's Moonlight Musings this week. If you haven't seen it yet, do look at it. She asks the question, "Are we preaching to the converted?" What do you think.
Monday, be sure to visit Sherry's Blog of the Week feature in which she talks with one of our regular poets about a particular poetry technique.
Sumana's Midweek Motif this coming Wednesday will be "Peace on Earth." Definitely a good theme for the season.
And just a reminder, next Sunday will be the last Poetry Pantry of this year before we all go on break for a bit & take time to enjoy the season.
With no delay, let's share poetry. Link your one poem below. Stop in and say hello. Visit the poems of others who link. See you on the trail.
