December Musings

December Musings

written by: Dr. Molly Joseph



Oh, my December !
cool December,

teach me meanings…
of waiting,
of valence
of the high,
and the low..

how to grow big
is to grow small

how heavens bend down
to touch the earth…



Oh, my December !
cool December,
give me

the child eye
its wonder spark

its kaleidoscope
to see
of fragments
fresh, new..
