Hello, December

Today’s Think Write Thursday prompt for this week is to write a post called “Hello December”. I have taken this opportunity to write a poem.

Candle with Tree Lights for Carole Knits

Hello, December
Hello to twinkle lights and glitter
Hello to pine boughs and cinnamon sticks
and all of your other lovely scents
Hello to candles in the windows and wreaths on the doors
Hello to gatherings and parties and merrymaking
and the hustle and the bustle that leads to tired mornings
Hello to traditions and all things Swedish
meatballs and cardamom bread, angel chimes and Dala horses
To cookie baking and gift wrapping and singing
Hello to hot chocolate, peppermint schnapps and popcorn
To Love Actually and A Christmas Carol and snuggles by the fire
Hello to good cheer and good will
To giving freely and without expectation
To bright cold days and long winter nights
Hello to slowing down
To savoring moments
To being present not perfect
Hello to joy
Hello to peace
Hello to hope
and the return of the light
