My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

Light a Candle, Say a Prayer, Make a Wish…



How well I remember this lovely ritual from my childhood; visiting our small, neighbourhood church.

Now, I send out this wish to my blog friends:

That you will find the true wonder and magic of this beautiful season.

And may all your wishes for the new year come true.


PS: I am taking a short blog break.

Will be around to visit at your blogs and then, see you next year! 😉
