Keeping it Simple

Simplicity is what I enjoy most at this time of year. In recent years I have began to honour my needs by keeping the holiday season low-key and spacious and it means that I look forward to it more. We all have our different ways of celebrating and here’s to the diversity of seasonal expression!

Seasonal Spirit

I’m not about the frills and flounce

the crackers and the gifts

Convention – I don’t care an ounce

Forced fun does not uplift

Yet I adore the simple joys

Of cosy moments chilling

I don’t need all the drinks and toys

My soul’s what needs refilling

Yes I’m about the sense of peace

the concerts and the candles

The keeping cosy, love and ease

Big plans I cannot handle

What’s pure and real brings me my bounce

This time’s about gearshift

I’m not about the frills and flounce

the crackers and the gifts
