Goodwill Toward All

A child was born
the stories say
and thus this morn
starts Christmas day
with peace and love
gifts from above
and a Santa

Merry/Happy Christmas for those who celebrate Christmas! Happy Holidays to everyone else! May you find peace, joy and love this wondrous season!

Netflix and Chill

The space between
your thoughts and mine
was unforeseen
and yet benign
I won’t rejoice
your movie choice
but will keep still

I found this prompt in a folder and decided to write something for it. In response to the 26 September 2019 Smitten Book Challenge prompt at the Brave and Reckless blog and based on the title of the well-regarded book “The Space Between” by Michelle L. Teichman where the main character is a lesbian or a woman exploring her sexual identity.
