We spent Christmas in Philadelphia, visiting our oldest daughter in her recently adopted city. We had a wonderful time, but it reaffirmed for me how much of a country girl I have become, and how far away Philadelphia (and thus my daughter) is from Maine.
The city hustle bustles
outside my rented window
Still my eye is drawn
to the silhouetted trees
backlit by the advent of dawn

Our last morning arrived and it was time to leave–happy to head back to our country home after a dose of city, but so sad to say goodbye.
This week’s Poetry Friday Roundup, the last of 2017!, is hosted by Heidi Mordhorst at My Juicy Little Universe who is celebrating trees today. Make sure to stop on by and end your year with some poetry.
