Monday WRites 327

Today's mosaic is titled 'Birthday Girl' The birthday girl is Yanda, my daughter. (All protocols observed) All vaccinated, a tiny group of family and friends (all girls party) went to the safe zone  'A Cup of Joe' in Woodbrook on the eve of her birthday to celebrate her turning 50.  That left her, alone time on, her actual birthday the 28th to relax and spend the day reading a book.
 ❧✿❧

Saying goodbye to month of November  and thanks for all the blessings. 
You've heard about the Monday Blues well this is  Monday WRites  (musing on the definition here of rite, as any customary observance for eg the rite of afternoon tea).
Welcome to Monday WRites # 327: A Happy Monday to all. Be Safe.

Challenge: to write a quadrille using any form of the word Crown

SAVIOUR AND KING
An earthly crown to pierce his head;
And he, heavenly crowned, to rule
For ever and ever over all, 
That has been created.

Ergo the manger awaited his coming;
Where three kings, already in crowns,
Paid homage, bearing gifts of 
Gold, frankincense and myrrh.
