Remember – R – A to Z Challenge 2019

Recalling your green eyes on that beautiful day.
Every delicate food that my mouth tasted.
Many minutes uselessly wasted.
Every kiss he blew from far away.
Moaning about the lack of money.
Befriending a stranger.
Enjoying the absence of danger.
Realising that the cake contained honey.

Footprints in the snow by Tess M Garfield

Day 17 Advent 2017, 3rd Sunday of Advent

Footprints in the snow

Silence falls
over a sleeping town
as the icy breeze stills
snow starts coming down

great big flakes
thickening fast
swirling and drifting
and falling at last

by the time the town wakes
there’s a blanket of white
a Christmas surprise
like a gift from the night

children rush out
big ones and small
leaving electronic toys
and having a ball

further afield
walking families find
unspoilt fields
thorny hedgerow lined

taking large strides
they’re careful how they go
leaving behind them
footprints in the snow
