L. B. Mek

A season of snowflakes, in dreams



 

 

 

at a time of dark horizons

and fog filled minds

melting, through Tier-clamped wishes and plans

comes a season for all to behold

 

augmenting frost-bitten reality

by choosing: to let hope flow freely

soothing, those despairing in misery  

and gifting all a cherished respite,

 

with every snowflake envisioned

bleak future's seemingly brightened

and our regrets, temporarily misplaced

making space: for that fresh start that beckons

 

a time for blinkered abandon

when laughter shared between a handful

in households or huddled corners in streets

serenades lonely hearts: in those trenches of night,

 

where inundated is surrendered  

to morning scenes

filled with trusting eyes from innocent minds

and their contagious: carefree smiles

 

scripting: our ending to 2020

with whimsy aplenty

and a survivor’s merry, that tickles

those most calloused of skins,

      This is simply wonderful.

      • L. B. Mek

        why thank you Clara, you generous and forgiving reader, so glad you could connect with my humble scribble, to summarise my message I will just quote the great Nat King Cole - for the umpteenth time in my life and simply state:
        'There may be trouble ahead
        But while there's moonlight
        And music and love and romance
        Let's face the music and dance',
        Happy Holidays dear Poet, thank you for gifting me an unexpected smile in these testing times, stay safe

        Very good write Mek, those snowflakes are totally individual as are we and both can bring beauty to our lives.
