Weekend Coffee Share

Broken Lights

Writing and Reflections

*reblogging an old poem…


Beneath the sparkling surface

Under festive ribbons and bows

Behind stockings hung with care

Lurks another side to Christmas

Filled with despair


In the quiet night

sits a young mother alone

by the cracked ceramic jar

emblazoned with “Pennies for a Rainy Day”

She knows it won’t go far


Across town

the room begins to fill

with the homeless and the poor

Thankful for hot meals

No other gifts will grace their door


Up the stairs

in a silent apartment

an old man moans

Recording another holiday

spent all alone


As we hustle and bustle

and gather last minute things

We should all pause to think

All the forgotten during this festive time

Who live on the brink

OK, let’s get serious for a minute, even if it hurts.

Just a quick note before we get started properly. I link to a lot of other articles in my posts, so WordPress users please check your Spam folders in your Setting Menus and approve any links/pingbacks that you find from me to improve the visibility of your own blog posts, as well as mine, it’s a win win for us both 😉

As you may have seen in my videos and posts of the past few days, I am currently in the midst of poetry madness all…
