“The angel wings flutter
A’top a tree so perfectly poised.
A rush of pine swirls aimlessly about the home,
Circling around the presents of toys.
The crackling fire glows embers of red
And the mistletoe swings low.
Family reminisces the events of the year,
While the kitchen smells of cookie dough.
Snow fades into the dark streets,
Sprinkling glitter around the town.
Cheerful carolers don’t seem to mind,
As the groups make their way around.
Rainbows of lights beam,
And wrapping paper rips,
Oh the joy of the holiday,
The beauty that is,
An Author Bio in the author’s own words:
”I have been writing since my small fingers could grip a pencil. As opposed to indulging in sleepovers and playing outdoors like a child should, I stayed in my bedroom writing stories about princesses and the traditional fairytale. At a young age I experienced the loss of a sibling and from that moment composed a 3-page long poem pouring out how I felt. I presented it to a few close friends and the feedback I received truly ignited my passion for poetry. From that moment on I wrote and wrote without end. I kept most of my work to myself, but only recently gathered the courage to share it with others. With every poem I write, I thrive to create a world individuals can empathize with and put words to feelings that seem indescribable.”
And with this post, I have truly concluded Blogmas!
