Hold onto the Twinkles

I’ll be the first to admit it.

I start thinking of Christmas lights well before Thanksgiving, and I hate letting them go after New Years has come and gone.

So starting January 1st, when I’m on my sunset walkabouts in the ‘Port campground…

I look for them.

I look for those twinkles in the windows, swirling around a lamp post, fence rail or tree.

Hoping to catch a glimpse of glowing light around every curve in the road, just one more glimpse of the Christmas magic I can’t seem to let go of.

And much to my delight it seems there are others, like me, who aren’t ready to let them go, either.

And as I gaze out at the ocean, aglow with sunset’s hues…

How could I not want to look back and see sunset glowing with those splashes of Christmas sparkle?

I guess I’ve never understood why some are in such a RUSH to pack it all away.

To douse all the lovely candles, the white lights and wreaths.

All those lovely things that, to me, aren’t just tied to Christmas.

As much a part of winter as the silhouetted pines against a symphony of sunset light…

Are my beloved twinkles, lighting my way, at least for now…

As I walk into the night. ❤
