Snowflake Kisses : Verse 2

Opening a new window to CadentWords’ Advent Calendar today, the second verse of Snowflake Kisses immediately led me to look up the word “wish”.

Even though I already know what the word means, I nevertheless opened the dictionary to read through the various descriptions and tally-up this overall understanding of how the word is described:

“To want or to desire the unattainable.”

Although I agree this sums up the word fairly accurately, the only portion I have difficulty with has to do with what is considered “unattainable.”

But who am I to debate a word’s meaning or understanding? Then again, why would anyone want, wish, or desire anything if only to think it unattainable?

So for today’s self-assigned creative writing lesson, I released myself from the urge to debate this any further. Instead, I allowed my gaze to brush over the page until the next word caught my attention, and then the next one after that, and the one after that too. This set-off a rhythmic ditty I couldn’t ignore since I had no earphones on to distract me!

“wish a wisha wish away
wish a wish away”

This led me to write a Winter Wish. A new poem I wrote this morning – the first in quite a while – which I’m excited to add to my Family Garden collection.


Winter Wish

Wish a
Wisha
Wish away
Snap a wishbone after dinner

Wish a
Wisha
Wish away
Walk towards a wishbone bush

Wish a
Wisha
Wish away
And you’ll see a wishbone flower

Wish a
Wisha
Wish away
Wishful I think it must be

Wish a
Wisha
Wish away
For you to witness all its beauty

A wish fulfillment for you all
Wishful thinkers this December
To see a bloom upon a shrub
Or snowflakes fall on Christmas trees
