Poetry Thursday - Year's End

As a blue moon rises over the waning year
spilling soft light through cloud-lace,
and tree shadows,
we burrow into the comfort of home.

Warm air from the woodstove
curls through hallways,
through doorways,
through the memories of bygone days.

Stories rise like the moon,
up through gales of laughter,
up through tears of loss or longing,
like ribbons, weaving things together...
weaving us together.

And what an uplifting, beautiful poem it is, Aisling! The words flowed like the champagne many (not me, hate the stuff) shall indulge in come midnight tonight!
Happy New Year!
