Poinsettias: Poems and Photos

almost dawn
small pink poinsettia
waits by the window

December 2019

Northern sun
shines on frozen beach
still the days grow shorter
shadow of poinsettia
on the wall

“Northern sun” is from our Quiet Christmas Poetry site and large print chapbook.

  1. You always post such beautiful things. I’m not sure why I wasn’t following this particular website but I will now. 🙂

    I wrote a poem a few years ago and posted a photograph of my brilliant red potted poinsettia. When we moved north, I took the poinsettia in the car. It traveled well but it never flowered again. I must get round to replacing it.
