Colleen Chesebro said : “As we enter December… let us give thanks for everything we’re received this year.”

It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Word Crafters, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you! This opportunity only happens once a month!

I chose a shadorma to show how truly grateful we can be for togetherness.

So entwined
Wrapped up together
Joined as one
At the hip
It’s our truth, our forever.
We grow love through us.

    Very pretty, Willow. I have decided that I can never be half of a whole, it is not in my nature. I operate very separately form my husband. I am always intrigued by those that can be so close. Is it better, I wonder?

    I love a poem that makes me think and feel. Yours does both!

    Joined at the hip. Nice. During this time my hubby and I have become even closer. It just goes to show how lucky we both are to have each other. Especially now, been together since I was eighteen. And we’ve had our ups and downs but he’s never dull! Lol. Though he moans more than he used to! Lol. The good times do outweigh the bad. Just what you need during these times.

        Yes, though we had a bad scare with mum and a small one with dad. Mum fell and hit her head, six stitches. It’s been so stressful. She is on the mend now. Then dad went and cut his toe, on blood thinners so he panicked as mum was out. Tough times. But me, David and kids okay. Hope you are all well, Willow. x

        Oh! I can understand, everything is more stressful these days add pandemic and distance into the mix and it becomes a total nightmare. So glad to hear you are all okay. We are plodding along having our fair share of ups downs and dramas! 💜

    Willow, this is so lovely! Everything seems so important now… I think we are all coming to grips with our own mortality. One thing for certain, love does come through us! ❤
