Four Ornaments to Ponder

And you shall ornament this yuletide season,
spread tinseled happiness ’round the world.

Brooch pinned to frayed prayer shawl,
treasured ornament from days long past.

Fruit bowl on wormwood kitchen table,
waxed ornaments that never spoil.

Ornament me
with your smile.

Ms. Quickly asks us to look around, see what grabs our eye. Name it and take that word, create couplets with it. Each couplet should have two lines, about the same length, and “look” at the chosen word from from different angles. Photos: What caught my eye — Two unique ornaments: Lillian – from my kindergarten teacher 64 years ago; and a very fragile bell, given to my mother when she was married. Ornament — an interesting word!

    Please do leave a link at Quickly’s I’m sure others would like to Ornament you with a 🙂
    Thanks for stopping by. I am a rebel by nature and tend to well, do the unexpected.

    The ornamental banner in the porch is safe from weather. As for one’s mood – I’m thankful for the New Year. But parades generally draw crowds…and I have become less fond of crowds.

    Always nice to meet a new face (though I believe I’ve seen your icon around…).
    Happy New Year.

      I did leave a post with the link to this poem on the Quickly site….but I just looked and it says “waiting moderation.” Strange…because there are other posts after mine and none of them are waiting moderation. Any ideas or clues on that or what I should do? Glad you liked this one. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

        The first time to a new site…if the site owner has it as such waits to be moderated. Once accepted future comments will go through (unless the site owner moderates every single comment).

    We took all our decorations down today, the tree was dropping bits of itself everywhere, and enough is enough. We’re still eating Christmas cake though. Hohoho!

      Strange….just went to Ms. Quickly and my comment with link to this post is there but it says it’s “waiting moderation.” There are new posts after mine and none of them say that. Any insight on that?
