Weekend Coffee Share

If we were having coffee, I’d invite you into my new office. My son is in school across the country and for the time being, I’ve claimed his bedroom as newly found writing space.

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
