Christmas Snow Celebrations

Celebrate new ways,
Elf dragonboaters ply
Snow-sparkly waters.

Season flickers hope.
Trilling lightly high above,
Sometimes hidden bright.

Step with light and dark
Winter solstice snow-dancing
Furiously, softly.

Walk deep into hearts
Journey into the twilight.
Starlit path with friends.

      Merry Christmas, Pit and for your family also. Texas is probably slightly cool?

    Thanks, Jean! 🙂 Texas – depending on where you live – can be really cold, too, with snowstorms, like in the Panhandle around Lubbock and Amarillo, the so-called “High Plains”. Here, in “South Central Texas”, the Texas Hill Country, our winters tend to be milder. We do have sojme frost, sometimes even for more than just a few days, but snow is rare.
    A Merry Christmas to you and all of yours, too,
    Pit

      Am hoping you get a dusting of snow on Christmas Eve or Day, just to add to the ambiance. 🙂

    Walk deep into hearts. Journey into the twilight. Starlit path with friends. Really liked this stanza, Jean. Nothing like being there for others and others being there for you. It’s a great feeling. Looks very festive over there, and wow, you have snow already. Keep warm and stay warm. Wonderful shots all round 🙂

      Yes, great time to be with friends and loved ones, if at all possible. Our first snowfall was in late Sept. which would accelerate the fall leaf colour. Actually the snow photos you see…were taken that month. Merry Christmas, Mabel and best wishes for 2019.
