Christmas thoughts.


holly trees
outside my childhood home
sweet smell
of green needled boughs dripping
from mantles
tinsel
found months later in crannies
question
each year
of white lights or colored
the new again
of treasured ornaments
the old again
of Christmas songs
the joy
in gifts given in love
the greater joy
of God's Gift
received
Remember.
