Behind the Bars of Winter Time

Behind the bars of winter time,
old Christmas Carols weep.

I miss the memories of season’s past,
both far and wide and deep.

Long ago there was a tinsel tree
with a spinning light beneath.

The blue and green and red,
would glow upon each tinsel leaf.

And then the powder white,
as if to snow within the house.

The joy as I unwrapped
each toy, each book, and blouse.

Such an important role,
the designated giver,
to hand out gifts to family.

I thought it would last forever.

Slowly we drifted,
as snow upon fenced in pastures.

I stayed, as if in waiting,
to return to those long lost pleasures.

The meaning of the holiday,
I question more this year.

To all of my loved ones,
I truly wish that you were here.

My Poetry, Photography, and Journals hold treasure from grade school to high school to adult school, which I'm still attending ... just waiting for the final grade. Each layer of life reveals a new truth and with age, it becomes apparent that time is my greatest rival. My hope is to reflect with words and pictures that offer comfort, insight, and wisdom for a life well-lived with peace and tranquility in the end.

I loved this Cindy, and I am not a poetic person, but sometimes……things just seem to flow.
