"a snowflake is winter's butterfly ..." poet - unknown
I am a child of Winter and have an infinity with snow. So, of course I wish and wait for those first snowflakes to fly. So, delicate and fragile, each one different. I wish for a Christmas full of family and love but all my family are dwelling above. So, I wish the memories will caress my soul Christmas Day. I wish for peace in the world, for climate warming to be slowed down. I wish for all people to put down their hate and revenge and replace it with acceptance and understanding. Because after all, we cannot know what others are experiencing. Giving a kind word of kindness cost you nothing and could be the gift needed. I wish for God's blessing in all that I do, my writing, my art, my photography and anything I seek. I wish for the end of racism of all kinds. I wish for warm shelter for the homeless this winter, and for soup kitchens to find the food that they need for the poor. I wish to be able to accomplish my New Year resolutions this time, I will re-write last years, they have not changed ...
snow falls filigree blowing in drifts on the street the day I was born

Absolutely lovely and appropriate, Constance. I was a winter child, but long for the warmth of spring and summer always. Interesting, isn't it? Everyone of your wishes for everyone I adopt! I want everyone to experience happiness and good health...and I mean everyone! Best wishes in the contest. I see a sure winner here!

Milt, thank you for the visit and lovely comment, I am truly a winter child (but do like the other seasons too). I wish that people would put aside their differences but I guess that is an impossible wish, thanks for the encouragement ~ peace and tranquility _Constance
