Monthly poem - November


The forest fir branches
tied with red ribbons
made a still carousel
with the twisted candles
on the window sill.
On top of the cupboard
the box of Christmas decs;
brought down to the sitting room
to dress the prickly tree
with faded tinsel and baubles
that broke too easily.
But the stocking that bulged
at the end of the bed
was full of hope and life's mystery.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
her poems glow like impressionist paintings.

Love wells up out of Jehane Markham's work... it made me cry.
