Merry Christmas Everyone!

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

(c) Megan S, December 2013

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.

    Beautiful Megan! Thank you for your participation. About the haibun, you have very correctly depicted your state during the Christmas and how your surrounding has transformed from the previous year to this year, yet your mood remains the same- jovial and fun-filled. I wish and hope you have a blessed year ahead and you bring the best in you indeed.

    This was beautiful and hope to read more from you.
