Glittering Ghost of Gardens Past Dec18 by melodylowes Glittering ghost of gardens past, you contain grain, a hope that will last; though you are crippled, a Tiny Tim breed, when Scrooge-Winter passes, you’ll scatter good seed.

I was thinking of A Christmas Carol today and the idea of the SPIRIT of Christmas. You have added a new dimension to the story for me with these words and your photo.
Thank you! 🙂
I love the Tiny Tim reference especially–I’ve been watching A Christmas Carol for several nights now (mostly the George C Scott one, but also an earlier one)–I can never get enough of it, though the Ghost of “Yet to Come” is so scary!!
I so love this classic tale – am a huge Dickens fan all ’round, actually. (I love his characterization!) It’s fun to enter his world in my imagination once in a while…
I agree–and I just reread your title, I LOVE “glittering ghost”–quite takes it out of the scary realm!
🙂 Well, it sure has been a glitter-fest out here this week – SO beautiful!!
Hope you’re keeping cozy-warm!
Oh, it’s ONLY 10F or so lately – very mild! 🙂
Well, I officially declared it cold today. We got flurries in the wee hours, yet I went to the mailbox in shorts, T, and sandals as per usual. And shivered, jogged back! So I may have to break out the shoes and socks, jacket…drat!!
And yet, somehow, I am strangely not feeling one single ounce of compassion for your ‘plight’. 😉
Great poem, Melody. But the photo gives me the shivers! Lol! It looks like the Terminator. 😉
Ha ha! Maybe I should do a re-run and write about a winter terminator…
She was an evil thing in Terminator 3. Oh, so lovely and then zap! A finger through the heart. Or was that my ex? Hmmm, meditation time… 🙂
Serenity now… 🙂

Great accent! 🙂
Hang on garden! We’re cheering for it! Thanks Melody, for blessing us!
Spring is so indescribably sweet for the long winter – I think heaven will be all the sweeter for this life, too! 🙂
Definitely looking at a ghost of days past here.
Perfect words for the season to go with an all time fave – A Christmas Carol 🙂
Go Dickens! 🙂
