The Inner Spark

And I sit under the tree, dimmed lights, the fairy lights twinkling and sparkling away in celebration, and as I write this, the carol of bells plays in the background. Christmas has always been my favourite festival of all. I love the festive feel and cheer that appears during this season. We woke this morning…

Awaken

The inky dusk filled the night sky. A shade of umbragenous ash filled the air.  A fire ablaze, flaming and powerful, it added a certain amorious warmth to the gelid air, slightly subduing the crisp winter temperatures.  I lay deep in slumber, snug and warm.  And just as the steeple bells rang, the first blush…
