HOLIDAY PREPARATIONS

The Tree

The difference is light, which the twittering
negotiations of sheltering sparrows does not dim.

Nor does the din of hundreds of onlookers
alter their cadence or volume even one decibel.


Yes, the season of enraged consumption
has officially opened even the paupers purse.

Free goods are offered, whetting appetites
to need what might surely be simple whimsy.

I often speak of quiet joys and here in this post Michelle, your whimsical creativity has touched me with the spirit of heartfelt giving. Your cards bring a smile as well as joy and I know this first hand. Thank you for sharing your life in thoughtful, profound, deeply moving words; in photos that tell of a richly authentic life lived in a bustling city; with links to so many aspects of culture, music, etc.; for sharing the beauty of your community, your friends and most of all, yourself with all of us. May the coming light of the Winter Solstice wrap its warmth and spirit around you.
