December 31, 2014

The end of the year,
resplendent in cold sunshine.
Next year will be bright.

The skyline has changed,
since I lived here. Vancouver's
now a big city.

December 27, 2014

In search of something
unique, we leave downtown. We
hunt for vintage finds.

Packing is a pain,
but Boxing Day sales beckon.
Prepare for the crowds.

December 24, 2014

The snow fall softly,
moon guides Santa on his way.
Distant bells jingle.

December 23, 2014

Grey threatening clouds,
loom in distant horizon.
Will they bring us snow?

December 22, 2014

Fog rolls down the hill,
hiding the blue sky from me.
All sounds are dampened.

It doesn't feel like
Christmas without snow, cold winds.
I'm sure we'll make do.

December 19, 2014

The power switch is
broken, so my phone won't work.
Desperately miss it.

December 18, 2014

The thrill of travel,
dampened by packing, cleaning.
Cat knows something's wrong.

December 17, 2014

What do the birds say,
chirping in the cold grey dawn?
Cat thinks it's "eat me."

December 13, 2014

Big eyes staring up,
hopeful for a lap, pets, sleep.
I welcome my prince.

Up to make breakfast,
it's still dark, quiet. Waiting
for winter solstice.

Only once a year,
I smell their sweet floral scent.
Blooming paperwhites.

December 4, 2014

Lying back, mouth wide,
someone poking at my teeth.
Dreaded dental date.

December 2, 2014

Faint bird songs almost
lost below the furnace. Cat
ignores birds and sleeps.
