I hope everyone enjoys the holiday season.
Here is a Haibun I’ve written for Paint the World with Words poetic form of the week. It focusses on Christmas Eve dinner with E’s family…
The Red Dress
Last year bouncing, spinning, dancing, singing. This year smiling, resting, sitting, listening. Last year body limber, jumping. This year body aching, dragging. Always family sharing, celebrating, joyful and happy.
Alone with the fog and pain
But surrounded with joy and laughter
Accepted with peaceful love

I’m going to take some time off now to spend with family. I’ll return in the new year refreshed and re-energised, ready to begin the adventure of defining the best me.
