Petite Pen, December 27, 2022

Traveling south today, this snowy scene inspired some brevity infused with images from a classic Christmas poem. Can you tell which one?

If you too feel inspired by this photo, join me in penning a seasonal piece of brevity, 75 words of less. If you post to your own blogs, please ping back here and tag your poem #petitepen.

Happy holidays!

New-Fallen Dream

The white icing winter
glazes rocks
along a wrapping paper riverbed.

In my new-fallen dream,
the stones become
sugar plum confections.

Overhead,
stubborn leaves swoon,
dropping their powder sugar.

Daybreak’s orange slice
topped with Rainier cherry
garnishes the frothy sky.

More rapid than eagles,
a cloudy wreath covers
the prize.

I rub my thistly eyes.
The entire fancy
fragile as a Christmas Pizzelle.

My new-found dreams,
crumbling in the cruel current
of the alarm bell.

  1. I find mist transcendental
    and, transformational
    an equation, worth the budding
    and the building
    reviving my inner-child
    a descendent of the past, yet
    the present creator, and the principle ignitor
    of a love that will last

    A lovely poem, yours. Thank you for always creating this space to share creatively with you. 💜
