a little joy
a break from the sadness
I headed into Boston
as the sun was setting
I walked through the Common
where I found the usual
and the unusual
the ducks, the geese
the dog walkers
the shoppers
the skaters on the Frog Pond
and yes, a variety of costumed characters
and a handful of Santas
it was Anime meets Currier and Ives

holiday music floated through the air
and the big Christmas tree shone brightly
next to a flag at half-mast

despite the dark events of late

it’s Christmastime
in the city

  1. Sometimes I really envy you that live near big cities—there’s nothing more Christmas-y feeling than being in a big city. Thank you for the tour of Boston, Susan!

    • Thanks Kate. I love walking around Boston, especially at Christmas. The city certainly supplies some different photo ops! It’s a nice change of pace.
