a Christmas gift





Muffle out the mean tweets
Mute the offensive comments
Cleanse the eyes from viral hate
Stay off social media, it's not too late

Listen to bird songs & buzzing bees
As winter storm brings deep freeze
Breathe in fresh pines & scented candles
Curl into the warmth of the blankets & carol

  1. This would be excellent on a gift I have seen... a box to put your smartphone it so you can think about something else for a while...
    I think I will try during the holidays

  2. I feel as if this gift is a Christmas break in the countryside, Grace, where there’s no Internet or phone signal, just peace and nature. I think I’ll be doing something similar at home, especially the scented candles and warm blankets.

  8. The birds, the bees, and even the winter storm (where one could theoretically explore the "birds and the bees" ahem), is a lovely gift! Thank you on behalf of all the poets reading this, for the wish, and back at you!

  10. Snugly placed for the cold months in anticipation. Certainly a gift from the vagaries of the hot preceding months!
