January Simple Things

though January
sometimes wraps
with bitter cold

I choose
the simple things
bringing light
and love
to my soul

I choose
chocolate eyes

Billy’s snow covered nose
after snuffling
through the snow

I choose
the written word
pages crackly with age

sepia toned photographs

loved one’s
 old school books
lovingly saved
passed down

by mother
a family
giggles shared

from friends
both near

Missy Hope
on my lap

I choose

on my shoulder
in my vision
the light of new day
a whisper

of angels
dancing through

pink clouds
with the wind
in the chimes

every breath
of my being
emitting from my very
own vocal

of love

spreading out
as angels
touch gentle
yet strong
through the world
its sadness

a word simple
yet not

Hello, I am visiting you today in the wake of Christina's love. Thank you for this lovely list, so nicely composed ~ both the words and images! Chocolate brown eyes! My husband, daughter and one of my son's has them, and I get lost them in them all of the time!

Christina said...

oh sweetie,
this is such a soft and grateful list.

Lovely, lovely...we are just sitting here laughing about the difference in "snow" between Canada and New Mexico! Everyone is panicked at the 7 or 8 flakes falling here and when I try to tell them what real winter looks like...they look at me like I am speaking a foreign language! I'll show them your pictures!!! smooches

Thanks for the visits and your shared words.

Leau, I know what you mean. I suspect that New Mexico folk are not really accustomed to the white stuff. We actually hadn't received that much snow yet this winter until last weekend. And then it fell in heavy thick layers of whipped cream.
