I Was Pleased 2 See Christmas Light Glow (December Reflections & Awards)



I took a walk in my neighborhood,
And I understood
The story of the little red riding hood,
I obtained a cheerful mood.
.
Geese fly,
vanishing from the sky,
Darkness settles in, veiling the earth low and high,
I smelled homemade apple pie.
.
I ended my walk
and halted my silent self-talk.
The shadow of myself followed me through,
I was pleased to see Christmas light glow.

*****
This is an entry for Jingle Poetry Potluck Week 15,
Theme: Reflections, Interpretations, and Musings,
A walk around the neighbor is a piece of self reflection to me…
Please join us by writing your entry today, Happy Sunday ahead!
