In my own reflective way,
I celebrated Epiphany today,
saying goodbye to Christmas
on this 12th Day of Christmas.
I undecorated 3 Christmas trees
and R.H. took the drying green tree outside.
Boxes still sit everywhere.
I'm not as organized as most of you are.
I don't have photos of beautiful January spaces
to post here at Dewena's Window.
But it's done.
Tomorrow will be better,
very cold but better.
"And so 'the Christmas' comes down,
the withered holly,
the tipsy cards.
The rooms look spartan and in need of flowers.
The fridge is filled with the crumbs of feasts
and packets which say
'Best until December 25th.'"
