Sunday Stroll - A-Flutter

The crest of
mid-December
and
all
is
a-flutter.

Snowflakes tumble,
Flags wave
Leaves shiver,
And trails wander away.

Paper snowflakes twist on ribbons,
As the cold settles in,
and the days slowly roll by,
while hearts are all a-flutter.



Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you the joys of the season.

Such a nice picture and thought process. Thank you for the gentle reminders of what we are all about right now.

Aisling said...

You're very welcome. I'm glad you came by to read and see!

Yippee! Yippee! I ALMOST wish for some snow, but we still have old icebergs in our grass and I have some driving around to do!
I hope you are living it up, enjoying that relaxing feeling that comes when finals are over and classes are over and you are free to read whatever you want to. I love that feeling!

Pom Pom, We're getting more snow today, which makes driving a little trickier, but we're old pros at it around here! I love that feeling too, although right now I am too busy preparing for Christmas to have started a novel. I'll get to that after the holidays I hope! :)

Brenda,
Thank you! I wish you a Merry Christmas and a year of beautiful days ahead!

Oh you've transported me and my granddaughter says, "I WISH I COULD SEE SNOW TOO." Well, someday, when she is a little older, she will see snow.

You make me long for a scrunching walk through newly fallen snow, a crackling fire, and here is my dream (of a lifetime) a sleigh ride with bells, thick wool blankets, and two prancing horses.

Joyous holidays to you and yours my dear,
Sharon

Sharon,

I have always lived where a white Christmas is a probability, rather than just a wistful dream. I hope your granddaughter gets her wish to see snow someday soon! We are facing the prospect of ice, sleet, snow or a combination thereof over the next few days, so I will be extra-glad to be tucked in among the quilts and wood-stove heat in our little house on the hill.

I wish you the very best this season and always!

hugs,
Aisling
