Monday WRites 185


In today's mosaic: A serenade from Sacred Heart Girls RC School Steelband, my 3rd Sunday of Advent candle lit, 2018 Christmas tree, 2018 Sorrell drink

SIPS OF JOY
Sips of joy, lets be ready
To welcome Mary's baby boy
Once again our heart we share
For Christmas time comes around
Nearer and nearer a star shines
Over a stable of majesty.

PONDERING PEACE
Peace where sky meets sea
When rainbows glow a plenty
And war a forgotten history like
Misted mornings hiding mountains

Hands to hold walking together
Smiles to savour from hour to hour
How this dream awakens desires
Hope in still many eras to consider

Respect and understanding bow
In meeting holding gazes steadfast
Love and honour marry freely
For off springs of generations foretold

Sleeping butterfly wings grow strong till
Time to come forth victory is already won

Monday WRites 184


[I used images from the internet, Fair Use. Cropped and edited them for todays mosaic]

PREPARE YE
Stars: polishing points,
the more to direct souls of the lost,
those with tails swish and sway
for soon a baby will lay in the hay.
cattle will low while angels sing,
and shepherds listen
to strange new strains adrift in the sky,
all in preparation of a wondrous night
PREPARE YE © gillena cox 2018

Monday WRites 183


SUNDAY AT THE MALL
Bold Poinsettias, reddened now,
cheer the pace of shopper's footsteps,
still though, allowing for a pause,
a breath, to listen to music of violins,
securing the swag of the musician's vibe.
Some Sundays at the mall swing that way.
Audience voices lend to microphones.

NOTE: Linking to dVerse meant I may have to edit my poem when the quadrille prompt appeared. So yes my edit was the word cheer instead of pulse
