Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Packing Up The Season…



Down they come one by one

Tangible symbolic memories

Of times and of places experienced

Tokens of things felt and seen


There are the delicate angels

Dolls, nutcrackers and stars

Souvenirs and framed photos

A large white dove and mirrored balls


The gold garland soaked in white lights

Surrendering its reflections to this dim room

Must come down with the rest

As Christmas time is through


Season’s greetings draped on twine ropes

Will be packed away as well

Love and heartfelt wishes

Are stored back upon the shelves


The nativity debuted in glory

When Christmas first drew near

Will be cautiously wrapped with love

And tucked away with care


Then there are the stockings

The trinkets and snowmen

The wreaths and random decor

All must return to their bins


I think that will about do it

Another holiday come and gone

Oh, I almost forgot

I’m not quite done


Lastly there’s the Christmas tree

Evergreen bathed in light

While not lush and living

It’s filled with vibrant life


The beauty of my enhanced surroundings

Lifted my spirits when they were low

I’m sad the ornamental is retreating

Only a year to their return, still a shame to see them go

  1. Your poem though was very nicely done. Blessings!

  2. This is amazing! Beautiful rhymes, combined with well written verses that move at a pace that remains equally the same all the way through. Your piece brilliantly captures the conclusion of Christmas and the holidays past.
    On a side note, might I shamelessly advertise something? I’m going to do so anyway…judging by the way you write, have you ever considered submitting your work to publishers. That, along with volunteer positions are what I discuss in my latest post if you’re interested…
    Take care!

  3. It really means the end of a season. But the memories recollected next time. and added new ones.

  4. oops forgot…
    Keep smiling
