Advent...

 

Gathering in light

Meeting in hope

Each day of the sun

A new aspiration

 

Yule Fire Carries Hope Forward

Yule...

Bundled against the cold

Seeking the flame

Past hope ignites

The light of the future

Chanukah...

 

Smothered in darkness

The coals of the heart prevail

A hungry flame

Endures

The Menorah Symbolizes Rededication

Kwanzaa...

 

Ripped from the hearth

Tossed out to sea

A doused ember flares

Seven hopes reborn

The Kinara’s 7 Candles Symbolize Principles of Growth

Blow On The Coals Of The Heart...

A single flame...

The light of the eternal

Blazes through minds

Shines through souls

And warms the heart

Better to light a single candle than curse the darkness...

    The complete poem...

    I am presenting my complete poem here because I realize it may be a little difficult to track among the pictures.  I hope you enjoy it!

    Season Of Warmth

    Gathering in light

    Meeting in hope

    Each day of the sun

    A new aspiration

     Bundled against the cold

    Seeking the flame

    Past hope ignites

    The light of the future

     Smothered in darkness

    The coals of the heart prevail

    A hungry flame

    Endures

     Ripped from the hearth

    Tossed out to sea

    A doused ember flares

    Seven hopes reborn

     The light of the eternal

    Blazes through minds

    Shines through souls

    And warms the heart
