Season’s Greetings!

Every part of this month’s blog was composed by BPS member Connie Pompilii, including her beautiful artwork!

Just when the beauty of Autumn ends, the wonder of Winter begins. As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, the month of December brings with it a sense of peace and joy.

A December’s Walk

The winter winds blow

as glittery flakes dance

across the pale blue sky.

Icicles glisten from snowy rooftops

as frosted windows glow.

Crimson red berries peek from

beneath snow laden branches

as woodland creatures gather underneath.

Pinecones drip off trees

as I breath in the evergreen air.

Some Poets Born in December:

Rainer Maria Rilke

John Milton

Emily Dickenson

Harriet Monroe

Thomas Gray

Happy Poetry!

On a June’s Day

The last blog before our summer break was written by BPS member Connie Pompilii. Connie is also an artist, and the creator of the lovely, summery pictures accompanying the blog.

The arrival of June brings with it a gentle reminder to enjoy the simple things. Whether it’s having a cup of coffee on the front porch, reading a book under a shaded tree, or walking in the park, June, like poetry, is full of many treasures just waiting to be discovered.

On a June’s Day

In fields of green

dandelion wishes appear

as

morning glories rise

to greet the sun.

Rows of lavender and marigolds

grace the garden

as sweet cherry tomatoes…
