Strings of white lights Strung all around Soft petaled snowflakes Falling to the ground Joyous carolers Spreading musical cheer Everyone reminiscing About another great year Wide-eyed children Gathered round each tree Meeting with Santa And sitting on his knee Secret mistletoe kisses In candlelit rooms Red poinsettias Never failing to bloom Warm eggnog cocktails And bobble-filled wreaths Celebrating a season Full of many beliefs Garland draped windows With snowy white scenes These are the memories From our childhood dreams
*I’ve decided to start doing more drawings to go with my poems. I don’t draw nearly enough and I feel like my skills need improving. So… I am going to do a weekly drawing and write a poem to go with each one. I guess by deciding this, I’m sort of starting my New Years resolutions early, What do y’all think? Any other ideas for how I can improve my drawing skills while still keeping up with my poetry? ~M
