We are in the season of gift buying and receiving, so I thought a few unique ‘writer’ themed gifts were in order.
I will be shopping for a secret Santa gift this weekend for my writing group’s Xmas party on Tuesday. We have a pot luck, gift exchange and read Christmas themed prose or poetry. I made an extra effort last year and made miniature cupcakes with punctuation marks on them. They certainly went down well. This year my pot luck will not be so labor intensive.
My poem from last year:
Snowflakes drift slowly downward
Sunlight shining through their intricate patterns
Layer upon layer, centimeter by centimeter
Gathering together to cover the world
A blanket of whiteness so pure
A movement, a flicker beside my eye
The delicate whisper of wings passing by
A tiny glittering, sparkling shape
The Christmas Fairy gently laughing
A tinkling sound so light
She flits back and forth between the flakes
Fluttering her eyelashes, she can make
Their pointed star shape rotate
As the snow flakes dance in the air again
This is her element. This is her time
What does your group do for the season’s celebrations?
