a poem written with a cat on my lap.




today is soft and gray.

the chimes are singing in the breeze

as the morning fog drifts lazily

just above the rooftops

and in through my open windows.

i breathe in the scent of the sea

and a distant rain.

it is nearly christmas.

So calming and peaceful. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

It's an elegant poem -- a tad melancholy and wintry but cozy and soft, too. Merry Christmas to you, dear friend!

Hi, Leslie! Oh, this is lovely... such a beautiful, dreamy image--very much the sweet-heart of Christmas. Hope you & yours had a wonderful holiday time. Very much enjoyed catching up with you here... I'm sorry to be so slow. Too much fun & feasting... LOL! Oh, and you'll never guess... I'm reviving the blog. Yes, and I was away sooo long... LOL! A woman's prerogative, and more...What can I say? ;o) Happy Days & Happy New Year ((LOVE & HUGS))
