December means remembering
that little details, that the small things,
aren’t so small afterall.
Bringing just a bit of earthiness
in the form of twigs and branches inside…
brings balance to what would otherwise be
too precious, too girly, or too cute.
Remember the painting Cindy
(my sister in all things fractured)
created of our Bella Luna?
Lit from above and with a touch of greenery,
in December the piece breathes with
(if it’s possible) even more serenity.
A bare branch seems just right
(at least for me!) for dangling festive
felted wool beads silhouetting a summery abstract.
With strong and graceful outline,
With branches green and bare,
We fill the land through all the year,
With beauty everywhere. (Robert Frost)
Right on, Robert.
Maybe it’s my indoorswoman-ish-ness
which causes simple details from nature…
How is your December shaping up?
Peace to you right where you are.
