Seasonal Gifts

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #417 - Gift

"As we enter Hanukkah and Christmas week, many are scrambling to find just the right gifts for their special loved ones. Maybe you celebrate another of the many holidays that come this time of year. As we all try to not lose ourselves in the hustle and bustle, let’s take a moment or two to settle our minds and let our words flow as gifts to one another."

May old man Winter
be benevolent
so your days will not
leave you cold and spent.

May Spring touch
your heart with buds
promising fragrant flowers
without any floods.

May Summer sun
cause you to smile
as diamonds dance
in ocean's aisle.

May Autumn's brilliance
make bright your day,
and heighten your senses
in every way.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
