A Child’s Cheer

As chilly nights

Churn cold winds

And unclothed trees

Hold branches

In a yearn

To huddle near,

Cherish the fleeting

Flowing moments

Of memory’s chalices

Filling with cheer,

As a child

Chants a prayer

And gently lights

History’s challenge

To despair

Lack

And fear.

 

 

 

For the dVerse Quadrille Monday challenge: Cheer

 

Light onto Light

In this time of longest darkness

May you be lit from within.

In the longest night and coldest

May your heart warm full with gleam.

May the light of endless lanterns

Candles

Oil lamps

Many flickers

Single glow

Fill your world with bright and shimmer

As the days begin to grow
