The holidays are upon us, and there's excitement in the air. Snow flurries swirl in our area, as shoppers rush from one store to another. Whatever your plans might be for this season, I wish you much good health and abundant joy. Don't we crave both these days?
Author Colleen Chesebro invites us to write a seasonal poem and include key words associated with this time of the year. My words are gingerbread, hot cocoa, and The Nutcracker.
A personal story. My daughter began taking ballet lessons around five years old and eventually danced professionally. I mention this because I've watched dozens of Nutcracker performances over the Christmas season and now live with the memories of those busy and beautiful years.
Here's my Tanka, and with it, I send my good wishes for a blessed Holiday season.
