are all words that describe
greenery & lights
are still up and about at my house
the second week of January.
Christmas is a magical time filled with promises
of love, laughter, joy.
Why does it have to disappear so quickly?
Why can't we have the reminders for a little longer?
I am not ready to see it go.
I still like seeing the welcome to my house...
The soft blur of lights surrounded by fresh greens...
The beautiful little tree with its dark green branches,
perfect shape, and just right single top stem
looks so cheerful leaning against the wall.
The holly tree and the mossy brick steps
aren't ready to see the greenery go either.
Bonjour, my friends,
not au revoir,
just a little while longer let's look at
the blue berries and the little green tree.
Let's enjoy the
little red ribbon holding the single
just a few more days.
tree that adorned the living room
is gone from the living room.
Sad to say, it doesn't look like its beautiful self
that sat on the deck waiting to come inside.
No, now it's dry, brittle, and ready
to become mulch.
the bright lights on the outdoor arbor are still cheery.
So, let's keep the front entrance greenery and
the cheery arbor lights a few more days
to remind us of the
love, laughter, and joy
