Dark Days

Dark short days, and Christmas in the air

Blankets of snow…on the ground, and in my hair

Mark the season I hold so dear

Full of family, lights and lovely songs to hear

Yanking me from the depths of despair

 

Take heart, take flight

Immerse myself in delight

No longer to remain with

Dark short days

 

I say to you: do the same

Embrace your heart; feel the flame

No longer dwell on what cannot be

Think only instead on what we can see

Think only of the light that came

On dark short days.

 

This is my first attempt at a Rondeau poem.  My friend Michael at Poetry Channel gave me some ideas to “befriend” my muse.   Really it was fun to write!   Sometimes when you get stuck, you have to try something new and formulaic.   Enjoy!

CHRISTMAS is coming!

Namaste,  Marie

#I LIVE POETRY and all things creative. I LOVE words. They hold so much power to bring joy and healing and play into an otherwise ordinary life. Words can also shift the world into a better place. Let's explore! Let's create! Let's heal... ~ Love, Marie Lukasik Wallace
