Splendor – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

like wandering children 
we stepped gingerly in morning iced-light

far from Christmas past
far from storefronts, Amazon delivery
miles from anything 
that necessitated wrapping

we were gifted with captured stillness
a fantastical frozen roadside of candied red 

delight reigned
and our hearts were awed

Wishing you wellness and peace 
wherever you are
whatever you celebrate.
May love land on your day.

  1. The commercial (and it has to be admitted, the religious) trappings of Christmas don’t get across this threshold. It’s winter wonderland here too. I like the way you slipped in the ginger and candied treats in another context.

  2. Those frozen days are refreshing, actually fun to play if you don’t fall down and break something. I think frozen wild strawberries would be good with the ice left on.
