December Dodoitsu #31

with a kiss we bid adieu
to another year, now spent,
pour the bubbly, raise your flutes,
sing for auld lang syne


And it’s a wrap! 2018 is ticking to a close (thank goodness!) and this month’s exploration of the poetry form called a Dodoitsu. I’m also thanking goodness for that too. It’s an ok form as forms go, but I think I’ve written enough dodoitsus to last a lifetime! Well, 31 to be exact. Like I said! 🤪)

Wishing you and those you love a bright and happy new year filled with peace, happiness, good health and prosperity. 2019…ready or not, here we come! 😊

December Dodoitsu #30

trilling songbirds greet the dawn
on this balmy winter’s day
bitter chill’s on holiday
lovely, too soon spring


December Dodoitsu #29

to feel butterfly flutters
breathless, while catching a glimpse
when they’re not looking, we live
for moments like this


December Dodoitsu #28

Counting the Ways

clearing my windshield at dawn
coffee for two, fixing things,
you don’t have to say a word
or three, I hear you


December Dodoitsu #27

what need have I for flowers,
fancy gifts or dinners out,
they’re just things, silly, really,
and they are not you
