By the fire, I watch flames leap around logs.
Before long, I am removed from surrounding antics
I find myself focused as I come to terms
with the passing of another year.
It feels different –
That cloak of darkness is absent.
I am grateful.

As the coconuts roll around in the cart
Their shells clunking together took me back to younger days
The smell of coconut boiling with brown sugar and ginger is everywhere
For the whole day it seems
In the end, a crunchy treat from childhood
A Quadrille is the challenge over at dVerse Poets Pub today, with the use of the word ‘Crunch’.

Today it’s Quadrille at
dVerse, with Mish hosting. The poem has to have exactly 44 words. The word that has to be included in the poem is “rock”.
Colorful pebbles wash ashore
as waves deposit a cache that rocks the
colors of the rainbow
How far have you come?
And what dreams did you stir on those far away shores?
Did they too, see the rainbow at the tips of their toes?
