R.A.D. Stainforth's lovely Christmassy reading...
There's a place for us,
an oasis between fruitcake
and watering the tree,
with hot-and-cold running kisses,
that stretch restless,
from the hearth
out to the snow,
where I push you back pink
knowing this smiling garland
around our necks
links forever compatible.
|Marc Chagall, 1914|

Here's to your fruitcakeReplyDelete
splitting at the seams with raisins
and glazed over with sweet coconut kisses.
Mmm...yummy...thank you Phil...cheers!Delete
I made fruitcake for the first time this year and it turned out good (I worried it might be a waste of corn squeezings) I like how you tie the images of Christmas at home with a loving and playful relationshipReplyDelete
Wishing you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year! And thanking you for all of the illuminations which you shared with us throughout 2012. Minerva xReplyDelete
