Pausing Thoughts

Autumn is still here
By the calendar
Giving way quickly to winter
My world is wrapped in white
I in boots and scarf
Wrapped up tight
Fall shows no remorse for leaving
Nor winter an apology for coming
We are told and know every year
It is no surprise

Christmas comes this time every year
Lights for weeks will be aglow
While we rejoice with festive show
While we will show no remorse for its leaving
Christ gives no apology for coming
We are told the historic story
The miraculous story
It is no surprise

Prophets that foretold His coming
Foretold of His coming again
It may be in evening or morning
The sun may be shining or skies be storming
The earth in remorse now is groaning
No apology be given for His returning
We are told
It is no surprise

This is the last prompt for for the year. We are pausing to engage ourselves in the holiday season. With that thought,  I leave you with something to pause and think on. I wish everyone a safe,  blessed holiday season and Happy New Year (if you happen to celebrate New Years Jan 1).

    I liked these lines: “Fall shows no remorse for leaving
    Nor winter an apology for coming” And how the second repeats in modified form through the rest of the poem.
