Then with each page we turn another layer is exposed….

Love the imagery of the poem and how well it flowed from scene to scene.
I like this one with layers turned inside out like winter socks and sweaters. 🙂 So many layers just within one poem.
Elan, I wanted to thank you so much for sharing beautiful poems this year, they really lightened and softened my days. Thank you, and best of creative winds for you in 2016!
I’m blushing. Thank you should be longer than two words. Ahh, and just like magic, it is longer.
Great poem! I’ve just read it out to my non poetry loving 18 year old son and he thinks its “good”. High praise, believe me…..
Layers on layers of meaning.
I love this! So many layers to our lives..
Gorgeously written. I very much love this
Really wonderful. Nicely written !
it reminds me of these artworks from the 70’s were people were letting paint drip straight from bottles, layering the gouache clouds on top of one another 🙂
Very true and well written. I enjoyed this poem. Jx
Awesome art! The layers, imagery and presentation of insights.
Love the line about Santa. Great poem, it really made me think. 😃
Excellent writing. Sounds like Chicago – as I remember it 😉
The imagery was beautiful. 🙂
Frohe Weihnachten, Wotan! May the new year be filled with abundance!
und du auch
Best read to end the year. I see layers every where, now.
So encompassing. Your images speak of everyday life in a soft and kind way – even when you speak of the horrors on the nightly news. The ending is delicious. Exquisite poetry.
Amazing. I love the movement into human connection at the end.
It’s all about connections, layers of them.
I love the internal rhyme and the spareness of this poem – distilled and playful.
Reblogged this on Still Another Photoblog.
There was a lot said in this post beyond clothing layers. I was also thinking about those volunteers who do soup kitchens to promote their image but do believe most ♡ “everyday” people care and try hard to remember the less fortunate. This was an interesting holiday poem and very meaningful, Elan.
Love your poem
I will now attempt to peel back layers of superficiality. Only, I fear the layers go on forever, suspended in a nothingness.
I will wear long-johns and a winter coat for this attempt.
Beautiful words. So meaningful and inspired me with a new perspective for a post I am writing on connections. Thank you, Elan!
Love this Elan. You have a fantastic insight into life.
moments back to back, moments on top of each other … reality. a lovely read.
News, Sometimes it’s a ear full, and other times to cheer for. Sometimes it’s the blue’s, that ain’t so much good news. Sometimes it’s alluding as they are masking and secretly laughing! 🙂
Love your poem!
What an awesome poem to present “not taking your loved one for granted.” Wow! I look forward to more…
?over it. Read it to my wife.
