Christmas Card Poem (2022)

Over the stillness
a silence greets our walk
alongside the snow
to your family,

the wind curiously absent
and no children
eager to build snowmen
or men walking their dogs,

a stillness greeting footsteps
that one sound
carrying us forward
binding us together in excitement,

that one continuous emotion
a love spreading us onward
across the snow
forwards never backwards

Telling each other ironically
It could only ha...

Things didn’t get any better by the end of the second day, when she started throwing plates at me like Boomerangs, and so, in a vicious frenzy I took ou...

Christmas Acrostic

Christmas is something beauitful for me and
Has a subtle magic in it which
Rains down on you softly
Instead of screaming or
