I’m often amazed by how much I love Christmas. What’s funny is that I’m not even sure why I love it so much. It could be many things: the carols, getting together with family, the Christmas lights, the cheesy movies on TV, snow and Christmas trees and coziness, etc. But, the amazing part is that all the things I love about the season are tied together in one inexplicable essence that radiates peace, joy, and love.
So, to start December off right, write a poem about whatever amazes you. It could be a baby, or a relationship, or the sublime of nature. Anything that feels so incredibly inexpressible, attempt to express it in your poem.
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
– William Butler Yeats
“In all things of nature there is something marvelous.”
