I’m cheating! I hope Christine will forgive me but her Crazy Holiday blog fest is tomorrow and I only realized it after I had everything set up, and since I now post at Jules on Tuesdays I decided I should still participate I’ll just post early.
So pretend today is Tuesday.
Author Note: If this makes the week seem longer don’t blame me. It was not my intention.
Since I’m moving (in TWO DAYS) I had to be more prepared. So here is my piece in 250 words or less.
The snowflakes flitter
My heart beats
A fight’s beginning
The war is on
Frozen in silence
Heart beats become one
Wind chimes ring
Release the cannons
Laughter amongst all
Snowballs high in the sky
Blue eyes water from the cold
Fight comes to a close
Lying in the snow
Cocoa for all this holiday season
Don't forget to sign up for the upcoming Be Jolly By Golly happening on the 20th!
That's a nice take on winter. Mine would be decidedly less poetic and not quite family friendly. hahaha
Lovely Jen. Very nice. I went over the word count. Yeah, I know, the hostess. whoops. Have a wonderful day!
Great job, Jen. This was the best blogfest. Short and sweet. :D
Ddduuuddeee good luck with the move! I'll be sending mounds of sparkles your way.xoxo
Such a great job, sweetie and wish you all the best with the move:) Muah and Happy Monday/Tuesday..hahah
Ps: I am hosting a beautiful home decor GIVEAWAY later today, just in time for Christmas!
That was really nice, Jen. I swear, you're energy just jumps off my laptop screen every time I visit you. Love that! Thank you.
Awesome poem, you're very gifted. Good luck with your move.
Lovely poetic slant on Christmas cheer and fun. ;)
Fun piece! Good luck with your move...:)
I smell Christmas in the air :)
I think we can forgive you for posting this early! =) Loved the poem - well done.
Thanks for the shout-out, Jen. The Anonymous Critique series has been fantastic!
For anyone who hasn't visited, please check out last week's anonymous critique!
Nice. Lots of great "sound" words in there.
I'm ready for some snow now (we haven't had any in NJ yet).
Great entry! I really enjoyed how you styled it too.
Aw, this poem makes me so happy! And makes me miss snowball fights. Good luck with moving!!!
Amazing Jen!!! Love it. =)
A sweet little ode to winter. Thanks for sharing, Jen! <3
Awe awesome!! Good luck on the move!!
That's fantastic Jen. :) Love the imagery you've evoked with so few words. Miss you!! :) I've been a bad blogger.
Very nice...I believe the blogfest is today. I also posted.

nice! Captures snowy outdoor fun perfectly!
I love this! It's a wonderful depiction of winter.
I think the blogfest is today, actually--no worries about making the week longer! (Although, it would have been funner with more of your posts.)
Short and sweet and perfectly written!
Happy Monday Dear! xo
What wonderful images, Jen - you've made me smile! Lovely Christmas vignette!
Love it! Tis the season.
Now I want some cocoa...
That's it! I want my Christmas to be like your poem. Beautiful work, Jen.
Good luck with the move! Loved you poem - definitely winter and all its fun-ness. :)
Thanks for the links! And I hope all goes well with your move.
Your words have painted a fun little winter day in my head! :) Very nice. Happy moving!
Love it!! Snow is fun, but I still hate winter lol.
Brilliant! I loved this, you really captured a scene with it! :D
NICELY DONE, JEN.
I don't envy you having to move. Good luck. I hope you got the chance to read some of the entries on my blogfest... it was amazing. Some fantastic stories.
I hope everything is going well...
Loved it Jen! Good luck with the move. Hope all goes smoothly.
Lovely! I want exams to be over so I can enjoy the holidays! OMG good luck on your move hope everything goes smoothly.
Hopefully you are moving somewhere warm! I've been frozen for a few weeks solid now. :)
Good luck with your move, Jen!
Very cute, I like it!
Great job on your poem! Seriously, outstanding.
Here's my take on winter:
Dry, cracked hands.
Shivering marching bands.
Red runny noses.
Frozen solid hoses.
Enormous heating bill.
Frosted road kill.
Leggings, scarves, hats.
Feisty Walmart spats.
Black Friday deals.
Boots with stiletto heels.
Blanket, fireplace, Kindle.
Watch my savings dwindle.
Cuts, scratches from ice patches.
Burnt sugar-cookie batches.
Sore throat, dry cough, hot tea.
Partridge in a freaking pear tree.
I love winter...
