Connections: December 25.17


Christmas Eve

the veil fell;

on webbed tiptoe

two ducks attended,

thickening the silence.

Christmas wrap

of folded wing

nodding branch

satin of still water —

in such small space

so vast a peace.



Wishing you a moment of peace, dear reader, in the traditions you hold dear.

  1. Merry Christmas! The snow is falling here on a definite White Christmas. Then the temps are dropping this week to -zero. Hope you are having a wonderful day. I ate Christmas cookies with my coffee which started my day off perfectly. 🙂

  2. Merry Christmas and enjoy our Indiana white Christmas which I always long for.


    • Hi, Nina! Thanks so much for your note — and a merry Christmas to you, too. It’s a Christmas card here, and I’ll spend a couple extra minutes taking it in on your behalf!

  3. Thanks for the message of peace, Maureen. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas. Our family traditions have been disrupted a little as I’m still shaking off a nasty chill. But we British have a few traditions we can all share – the Queen’s Speech (tick) and the Christmas Doctor Who Special (about to start).

    • I’m so sorry to hear about your chill, and I hope you shake it quickly. That’s an especially nasty affliction at Christmas time. May the Queen and Doctor Who see you to better health quickly!
