encapsulate : to enclose in or as if in a capsule
sealed up tight
the snow blows the cold rattles
the windows. Winter.
shadorma 473 : 11/8/22
dreidel : a 4-sided toy marked with Hebrew letters and spun like a top in a game of chance
A car wears a menorah
Three wise men bear gifts
Front yard dreidel greets the street
Santa Claus waves from next door
tanka 370 : 12/19/22
annus mirabilis : a remarkable or notable year
Oh I hope
raw red winter sun
I may live
in your rays
an annus mirabilis
full of gratitude
shadorma 490 : 1/1/23

I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of the dreidel and Santa!
Thank you. I was at a loss with the word dreidel but around here a lot of people have holiday yard displays mixing all kinds of traditions and suddenly I thought of that and knew what to do.
I like the first one especially. (K)
Thank you. I like winter. But it takes a strong mindset sometimes to manage its effects all right.
