Hello Friends! Happy Day-After Thanksgiving!!
Well, for all of you who know me well, I am not artistic nor poetic, it's just not my nature. I would rather do math problems or read science journals, but I feel this adventure in Europe is about trying new things.... reason #1 I joined a rugby team!! So, in accordance with trying new things, I sat down with a warm cup of tea and decided to write a poem about the holidays. I can't believe I am actually going to post this on my blog, but here it goes :)
Thanks again for taking the time to read it, and again, I hope you all had a marvelous holiday! Much Love!!!

Pumpkin colored leaves gently fall to the ground,
As hot chocolate overflows mismatched holiday mugs.
Pink wool scarves and warm toasty mittens greet
The whistling wind as it welcomes the approaching storms.
Dawn and dusk are encompassed by total darkness, as daylight becomes scarce
While the sleeping sun wraps itself around a quilt of gray clouds.
Glistening frost sits upon the fences and rooftops
And puddles are as abundant as dripping umbrellas.
Chimney smoke signals the comfort of a home
As vibrant flowers and colorful landscape hibernate until spring.
We welcome the holiday season with much cheer,
Because rosy cheeks and bright smiles ignite happiness to warm the winter.
