Could've Been

My eyes dance to light on the floor of our hall
There in the shadows a silver key ring shines
Stooping to retrieve
Sliding on my ring finger
Just a fit!
Thoughts speed on my mind's race track
You and me - two twain in one flesh
Cuddling the ring to my chest
My eyes shut
Dreaming of what could've been.

Out of chaos
Random pain
Meaningless repetitions
Comes a flood of meaning
Fresh wind enters
Welcome refreshing breeze
Life's renewed

Fire's Out

 Passion flames. 
Sparks stoke grief.
 Waning embers dissipate.
 The fire's out.

Holly Alternative

How do you adorn your mantle? In Newtonia, I have donned my Mother's mantle with Nandina. It is the perfect alternative to holly berries and they look just as festive.
