It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Word Crafters, choose your own poetry form—It’s up to you! This is our last Poet’s Choice for 2021… I have a request. Let’s write a poem using a form of your choice about Yule, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza, and any festival or tradition you celebrate during the month of December. Even if you don’t celebrate, share something meaningful as we go into the dark days of winter. Share your wisdom with us. Remember, I’ll have a new weekly poetry schedule beginning on January 1, 2022.
We went with a double etheree, enjoy!
One winter Christmas day Just nine years old cold, nothing to do I bring home a stray dog Mum won’t let it in the house I did not want to open gifts. With heavy snow falling, I waited Mum let me give him a bowl of her soup My heart broken, I wanted to keep him That Christmas wasn’t one of the best Mum said I would soon forget him Years later I remember my cold Christmas orphan He’s out there somewhere I hope someone took him in to their heart
