December greetings!

the earth dressed in white

mellow golden glints kiss its furry skin

the bare stalks at the distance

stands motionless,

crystal earrings glistening on

their naked soul

the roots buried deep beneath fluffy whites

yet breathing, unhurried,

the last green still clasping to the brown

unwilling to leave its abode,

the irritable frigid gust finally plucks it

swaying and dwindling it settles

on the permafrost soil,


the alpine winter has arrived

the snowy breeze whistling

the misty song of wilderness,

birch, pine, fir, relishing the

milky ice cream

the silver chunk shining high

in the velvety dark sky, wanes

gradually, every evening,

promising an undying love

to the snow-draped blue orb

promising it’ll return, some other night,

with a heart full of gleam,


the delicately plummy snowman

near the fence decks up in

his chosen winter garments

flowers, bells, wreath, candle, stars

embellish the doorstep

the sleigh, reindeers, a bagful of bliss

waiting to embark on

a journey, ready to be distributed,

the gifts of happiness at each door as

anxious eyes await to hear the jingling bells,

the Journey of the old Red man

from Lapland to Loveland will begin soon. 💚
