December’s Rise

December’s Rise

November gives thanks to all who precede.
After the feast, it gracefully exits.
Autumn’s color fallen away indeed.
A landscape blanketed in leaves permits
December’s rise. It sweeps onto the stage
alight with seasons greetings, warm regards,
and Advent wreaths. ‘Fore the year turns the page,
dream of a white Christmas and write your cards;
send them with best wishes, then deck your tree.
‘Round your house string lights to guide Santa’s sleigh.
Recall those who’ve naught on your shopping spree.
Save something to donate; so on that sleigh,
by gifts wrapped in sparkle and shine, a gift of
your mercy waits, to be given with love.

Sarn, his son and other characters from the  Curse Breaker Saga have had many exploits this past week.

They also lit the first candle of their Advent wreath (after a bit of a kerfuffle). Here’s what they’ve been up to:

We also flashed back to some events in Sarn’s past:

Elsewhere in Shayari other folks got in on the action:

Elsewhere on the One Continent, folks have been busy too:

My characters allowed me to write a few pieces that don’t take place in Shayari or star any of them:

And of course, this week there was some miscellaneous ‘Mel’ mayhem afoot:

And that’s wrap. I hope you had a great week and an even better weekend.

    1. Thank you 🙂 I’m two trick pony. I write prose-y, vignette-ish sonnets and epic fantasy novels and that’s it. 🙂 I play to my strengths. When I have beat those two horses to death several times over, I might try something else. Maybe.
