Small Stones: Extended Remixes #7

Out of order from the originals but this poem is an extended version of the small stone observation for 6th January.

Thirteenth Morning

The decorations are gone                   
all returned to their boxes,                             
and returned to the attic.                               
The string of lights is wound
around a piece of wood:
no more rainbow twinkling.
The tree, tinselled and baubled,
wrapped in a plastic bin liner
is waiting to be stored away.
Saddest are the Christmas cards
that lie here on the table,
leaving pin holes in the wall.
Penguins, trees, wreaths, baubles,
snow scenes, reindeer and wise men
all ready for recycling.
