Paws for thought

13 December is Lucia – one of my favourite times of year.

Lucia is all about children dressed in white and carrying candles

To symbolize hope and light in the darkness.

The dawn that day didn’t disappoint either.

It blazed with light and colour,

So that dogs (and people) seemed small and humble

Under the huge lilac sky;

And paw prints were etched across a purple

Canopy of snow – leading the eye

To that glorious sky of hope.

  1. I have never seen an assemblage of the colors I love most than in this post: luminous violets, pinks, and lavenders. Lovely – all the way from animal paw prints to a glorious sky of hope!
