Winter is here…

Winter is here,

With snow covered landscapes spread far and near,

‘Tis The season of joy and cheer,

Ho! Ho! Winter is here.

It is time to reflect on the past year,

To take a good, hard look at the scars beneath the happy veneer,

To look back at all the situations which made us feel defeated and shed tears,

To count the accomplishments and all times we overcame our fears.

And to count the blessings bestowed upon us this leap year.

Finally it is that time of the year,

To make plans with the near and dear,

To eat candies and deck up in festive wear,

To drink hot cocoa and smile from ear to ear,

To be ready to welcome Santa and all his reindeers!!

With renewed hope and vigour, joy and cheer, it’s time to welcome the new year!!

  1. Superbly rhymed, perfect Christmas poetryπŸ‘

    I was never happier to welcome another year, If possible would have leapfrogged this leap year.
    But the season is upon us now, so let’s get ready to celebrate. So what if we don’t have snow around us, we still have our families – the joy of being together and happy and feeling blessed in being so πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much Radhika for your kind wordsπŸ€—πŸ₯°….and yes…hoping the new year brings good things and most importantly gives us a vaccine to take care of the menace of the pandemic..


    1. That’s so fascinating to know.. Christmas usually means snow and winter… imagining hot Xmas is really amusing… but in the end it’s the Christmas spirit that counts…the joy and the laughter and of course the good food πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  2. I love that last image! It’s everything that my Christmas isn’t πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I’m not a very religious person but I’m trying to remember that it’s all about a boy child and love. Merry Christmas to you, and joy in the year to come.
