Monday WRites 91


[image from google dot com]

A JANUARY NOTE
Paper calendars, of pictures pretty,
Pinned to spaces, on the walls,
Be they wooden or be they walled;

Unblemished fruit and vegetables,
Sunsets and sunrises in radiant hue,
Quotes of inspiration, quaint and wise

Shape of moon, and festivals tide
Adding decor to count of days

  4. It's good to have multiple calendars--not only are they decorative, but they cover up any stains or holes in the wall. (And I need to find myself some tape dispensers like those--lol)

  9. A nice new calendar to start off the year does bring to mind all the possibilities waiting for us. Just like that fruit you describe the new year is unblemished and ready to be explored.

  11. I love your calendar poem, Gillena. The obtaining of the new ones and the hanging of the new ones have been a ritual of my family since we started it. I could tell stories, but won't. Except to say that for us it's "like father, like son." Dad had at least twelve showing each month of the year and then quite a few of his favorites, all hanging prettily in his office.
    On my other blog I started with a picture of my most precious, a classic NAPA car calendar of this same kind, collected since the 70's. I am missing the first edition. One of my December posts there was also a new calendar, different from the NAPA one. Come peek.

  13. Those tape dispensers are hilarious! Not sure I could use the tape coming out of them. :) I like this poem, it seems almost wistful for being organized and optimistic at the start of a year... already past, that feeling, at least for me. Happy new year!
