December 25—Christmas is here!


In case you need another reminder about what Christmas is really about, here’s my final poem for the holidays.



that’s black with night

and the white of a star

and the golden sheen

of heavenly crowns.

Add the faded blue

of a mother’s gown,

the gray of sheep,

a manger-bed brown,

plus the pink of the skin

of a newborn babe.

Paint me a poem

with a brush of hope.

Title it

As always, I wish you a stress-free, love-filled Christmas!
