on a tree

magical to see

in a world filled with 

strife it's still a wonderful life

we have wills that are free hang lights

on the trees and the world fills with peace

the snow gently falls and true love conquers all


poetry jam

childhood beliefs

my town shoot out



  1. Peace!
    Merry Christmas!

  3. nice...we do have free will...and even in the darkness of our world at times...we can choose joy...true love does conquer all...

  4. What lovely remembrance of childhood beliefs--so full of optimism and hope. Thanks for posting this.

  5. Peace is where you find it. And only you can find it.

  6. I love the poetry, and the photo, and wonder why you didn't link any of the past 3 posts to FSO. They are all perfect. I liked the story of forgetting your list great writing. (Stop lights = lights in you town.

  7. I agree that lights often convey a feeling of peace. "the snow gently falls and true love conquers all / peace" - beautiful closing line!

  8. The lights on a tree are indeed a wonderful reminder of the wonders of life which are there if we only look around.

    (Consider posting this at dVerse Poetics as well. It would fit the prompt - 'lights.'

  9. Truth in childish beliefs.

  10. wonderful words and form. Merry Christmas!

  11. Lovely interpretation of the topic!!

  12. Love the poem, simple but a picture of the lights on a tree as good as any photo could be.

  13. Good message for our frenetic Southern California..
