Image result for holly with snow and berries

This was the poem for today in the 'Poem for Every Day of the Year' anthology. I love how the dominant feeling of hope is subtly, but powerfully presented.

Forecasts - Jean Kenward

There are berries this year on the holly
it wasn't always so.
They may be simply a forecast,
forecast of snow.

This frost on the sill
I've seen it glitter with diamond light.
It' slippery too, the traveller must
watch his step tonight.

There's a moon as big as a melon
and far off, oh how far
flickering on the horizon
a fresh and different star.

In the heart of man is a coldness.
Through a crack in the stable door
there glimmers a new dominion.
Even ice can thaw.

  2. I'm someone who has lived a life seemingly in the background, I must say this final indignity I have suffered almost too much to endure. You see, I have been sickly and weak since the day I was born and doomed to go through all my life a weakling. I seemed to have always suffered from one illness or another and could never play with the other children as I so desperately wanted to. Mother always made such a big fuss over me, also, making the situation worse as the other boys teased me mercilessly after they saw it. I was browsing the internet searching on how i could be transformed into a powerful when i came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I has always dreamed of becoming a VAMPIRES, All i did was just to follow the procedure that i was been told, and i bet you that procedure I took change my entire life to something i ever desire, freedom, sickness free, pains free, fame, influence, connections and even more that i can. Thanks to Lord Mark. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email:
