Christmas Cactus fallows
The season imperative,
blooming an early December morn
I have images of this blooming cactus
on both solstices: Summer and Winter.
Today it added another color to my plain garden
gathering a green mantel round its shoulders and shivers.
A shooting star burning too bright, too fast, too soon
The return to life’s as promise must wait
the tilt toward dark still skies
must be completed, then
and only then,
we are free to
Light fires, ring bells
and wish one another
A Merry Yule!
Poem expanded from a few lines on Monday for Margo Rody’s Holiday’s Tuesday Tryout poetry prompt.
Yes GREEN for winter to be expected, and hoped for in Norther California gardens, and hillsides.
Hope each and everyone had much to be grateful for this weekend!
Tell me what you think.
I have more question for you my Phoneographers: I will begin teaching a Beginning Smart Phone photography class at the Albany Senior Center starting in January and I would love to pick your brains (if I may) my talented smartphone photographer friends.
1.What would you like to learn if you to learn if you were just starting out to take photos with your new phone?
2.What did you learn that was the most help?
3.How is phoneogrphy different from camera photography?
Oh Dear that’s a lot to ask but any thoughts would be helpful, Thank YOU!
And any local folks are welcome to join or come by to join in our photo safaris just let me know.
