2019 Christmas Countdown 22: Yule Log


Yuletide wishes to all of you,
May the Yuletide bring something new.
Keep the Yule log burning in the harth,
And a pound of love in your heart.
Let all and sunder know you care,
And that you will always be there.
So happy Yuletide to you and yours,
Wrap up warm and don’t let christmas pass in a blur.

Advent 2019: 4 Peace


At this time of darkness,
Where the nights feel never ending,
And the world feels broken,
We can often forget our humanity.
***
We try and push the dark,
Into a space in the back of our minds,
And keep thoughts of wars,
Suffering and pain for the new year.
***
So we light the last candle,
And bring to our minds forefront,
The thoughts of peace,
And what part we play in the world.

2019 Christmas Countdown 22: Darkest Time


Winter Solstice,
Comes over us,
Making the world dark.
***
But tomorrow will be light,
And shorter will be the night,
bringing back the warmth.
***
Although today is dark,
Look to tomorrow,
As the start of a brighter time.
