New lease of life

New lease of life -
redundant fence-posts
blessed with age,
the fruit of harvested trees
and splintered trunks,
commence wandering thoughts.

Bursting with value,
comforting warmth
in a sense of the past
sneak from the hearth
sparking effervescent whisps.

A hundred and twenty years
of fireside sitting
the hearth remembers,
the heart dreams,
the heat in affectionate embrace
conjures whimful wonderings
and daydream smiles.

Paths beyond and in-between
where feet have followed
the trails of time.
Paths around and alongside
the naked trees
dusted in the dreams of white.
Paths of footprints;
the tired walking of dogs.
Paths of paw prints:
playful canines
and cold-slowed walkers.
Paths of journeys
of those
whose paths they are.

Angels came

Angels came
carolling the night sky
with their dance
of light.
And in the love-song
that filled the dark’s crisp stillness
light revered Light.
And the poor
were enriched,
the lonely
were loved,
the forgotten
were celebrated
and there
was room


Happy Christmas everyone. 
  Sorry the posts dried up recently - the 'flu rather spoilt the party by gatecrashing the festive season.
