Description:
THE LAST DECEMBER

For the 2017 Month of Challenges (MOC) at The Lilypad. Elements are from Little Butterfly Wings (M3_Setp16_ADDON); Lynne-Marie (M3_Sept16); Paula Kesselring (M3_Nov15); and Quirky Heart (M3_Nov14, M3_Feb2015). The font is CK Melton. The poem is mine:

The Last December

I am in the last December.
Those who have traveled
this far feel the coldness,
the freeze in the joints,

the stiffness of limbs.
I have seen companions
sit down, at last, finally,
on the ice, gesturing

the rest of us on. We
go on. Slow and stumbling
on numb feet, we carry
our frost-bitten hearts

through winter. Holding
fast to each other, we go on.
