A poem written for WDC Media Challenge, December 2020
(Inspired by ‘Carol Of The Bells’ by Lindsey Stirling)
Derelict and desolate,
the building long abandoned;
never knowing Christmas cheer
and this would be another year.
But then, as if by magic,
it warped into a music video venue.
Lights... camera... action,
with three trees of light refraction.
Snowflakes from the ceiling
that gather all across the floor
as bells ring out from violin strings
and dancers dip and do their things.
That room embraces Christmas cheer
and the future then, it holds no fear
for a building, dejected and abandoned,
has now been loved.
