LET US GARLANDS BRING and BIRD FROM SNOW from James Goertel’s new poetry collection, Under The Same Moon, are an offer of good tidings with a touch of pine and snow to everyone for this holiday weekend.
LET US GARLANDS BRING
Leave behind another year, let us garlands bring
in this the season for forgetting while remembering
forgiveness shivers outside in cold structures of silence
awaiting our breath’s warmed and whispered reassurance
as soft as winter’s blanket of snow adorning needles of pine.
BIRD FROM SNOW
Little hands so cold
Fashioning a bird from snow,
Our warm hearts take wing.
All the best to you and yours this holiday season ~
