December 25—Christmas is here!

Finally!

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

PAINT ME A POEM

 

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

                        CHRISTMAS.

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