“Realize that if a door closed, it’s because what was behind it wasn’t meant for you.”― Mandy Hale Flakes of beauty and castles of glass,Trees caked with pristine powderAnd the cold white blanket beneath –Testify to the great inner turmoilPlaguing the winter soul.

A Christmas Tale ❄️

The true Christmas spirit is putting others’ happiness before our own, and finding you’ve never known such happiness.

The silver glow of Christmas twilight,
Saw the child staggering home,
Into the dark, frosty woods.

Fingers frozen, in she went
To see her brother weeping.
“Santa’s forgotten us”, the little one cried .

Twas a Christmas day
When love discovered its path,
Anchored in hearts, it blossomed into
A home for all
.

Cold, dark and scared,
Wrapping him in her cloak,
She cradled him till the sobbing ceased.

Mother arrived at the twelfth stroke,
With unsold quilts,
And held the frozen ones close.

Her tender love
Warmed their chilled souls.
With grateful hearts,
In wonderland dreams were they lost.

For lack of temporal presents,
They’d been given a celestial mother
A blazing star in their skies .

Mother’s love is infinite.
A child can’t outgrow it and a mother can’t conceal it.”
― Michael Bassey Johnson, The Book of Maxims, Poems and Anecdotes

I wrote this poem for the Winter Writing Workshop hosted by Reese @ Blogging with Reese! The prompt was to write a winter poem in less than 125 words. It was inspired by Coco Cola’s 2020 commercial. Watch it below! It’s a lovely commercial!

Thank you so much for reading!

Time // December Deflection

Time is the longest distance between two places.
― Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie

With a pace quicker than light,
Leaving memories dark and bright,
Time goes on and on
Like a river in flow.

Unaffected by the evils of man,
A master of its own lane.
Oblivious to love, hate or greed
Always present for those in need.

Perfect and pristine in its path,
Time goes beyond math.
Even after death,
Of time, there will be no dearth.

Time will go on and on
Like a river in flow.

How did it get so late so soon?”
― Dr. Seuss

It’s incredible that it is December already. I feel like I was in a trance for much of 2020, never quite getting time to digest what was happening all around. I think while the virus has had a drastic impact, this year remains one of the most authentic accounts of our adaptability. It was definitely encouraging to see law enforcement officials, health workers and teachers adopting the required norms just as fast as the times called for it.

They say time heals all wounds, but that presumes the source of the grief is finite.

Since December is often considered a festive season, I’ve decided to start a new, weekly Christmas series! Given below is the logo for the Christmas series, named Christmas Cafe!

That brings us to the posting schedule for December:
Mondays for regular posts which may or may not be Christmas themed and Fridays for Christmassy posts! Also, Haley @ My Life Of Faith will be doing a guest post this month! She’s writing a book review which I’m excited to read!

P.S The poem above was one I wrote a few years ago. I wanted it to rhyme and ignored a lot of things which is why it sounds quite cringy and bare.

If you have a few minutes to spare, I’d highly appreciate it if you could fill out this feedback form!
