Gathering — ’tis the season for family, friends and communities to get together for the holidays of all persuasions!
Centuries old, this social custom of gathering is filled with traditions, some old, some new. While many of us are heading home for holiday celebrations, others are taking a flight to warmer climes or ski resorts.
Whatever the season or reason, enjoy as you gather together!
As the year is winding down, wrote this haiku on home for a poetry prompt:
Aside: Looking for a new listen, you might enjoy these music favourites available on iTunes: Christmas Lights by Coldplay ( this is played many times!!!) and The Little Drummer Boy by Sadie and the Hotheads — Sadie plays on Downton Abbey! Enjoy the season! 🙂
In response to The Daily Post's weekly photo challenge: "Victory."
Victory is a complex word, with all sorts of connotations and interpretations -- past, present and future.
Given the horrific events in Paris this week, I have decided to respond with a theme of light for which this city is so well known as it has triumphed over many obstacles.
(Note, I have added a French version of my poem, thanks to Google Translate. It has been quite a while since I studied French at university but I think that the translation is on track. :))
