JC republishes her “Boxing Day Colours” and sends her wishes for a happy 2018

Boxing Day Colours

Three black pigeons found solace

in the too-warm puddles

They alone had not dreamt of a white Christmas

Did not regret the grim, gray slush

that bequeathed lines of salt to new leather boots

still stiff from packages, now crushed and

stuffed along with blue reindeer wrapping

and rivers of silver ribbon

into bulging green garbage bags

at the curb

of a new year

    Feathers are light but would fall at the same rate as a stone if both were in a vacuum.
    Happy New Year Joanne. I hope you all have a wonderful year.
