Lovely Poem - captures the magic

I love the tough wistfulness, and the changes in perspective, from huge vistas to small details. And funny too! What more could you ask for? Merry Christmas.

I love "The winter sky was splattered with stars" - the word splattered especially. Also the listening to the night. The note of regret is lightened by the writing in the snow. Well done EW, Happy Christmas!.

You've captured some of that Christmas magic. Love it!!

Rachel Fox said...

Yes, just the right amount of magic too. Like a dusting of snow.

Really like it. I think I'll try the snow graffiti trick myself, as it looks like we're in for a white Christmas.
