Poetry topic idea: winter solstice

Today is the winter solstice.  Happy shortest day of the year! (If you are in the southern hemisphere – happy summer solstice.  Happy longest day of the year!)

This day can inspire poetry.  The ideas of darkness, light, seasons, change, turning points, and so forth can all be used in poetry.  They can be applied to many different ideas.  Here is a poem inspired by the day:

the doctor said,
for the first time,
it got smaller



Because of Christmas, there will be no new blog post on the blog December 22 – December 25.  The next new blog post will be on December 26.  Merry Christmas.
