Joseph and Mary

Christmas Is . . .

Gingery spice
Filling the air.
Spearmint leaves
Stuck to tasty houses
With Dum-dum light posts.
Cinna-minni sweetness
Rolled in butter
And fluffy dough.
Seeping stealthily through the house
Calling soon-to-be sticky fingers to the kitchen.
Joseph and Mary
Sitting in our house.
Careful not to fight
Just this one night.
Gently rocking baby doll Jesus
In His Tupperware manger.
Soft sighs of contentment
As kids snuggle under the covers
In new pajamas.
Cookies and note in place.
Knowing Santa is real.

More important, knowing Love is real.

This is me wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays whatever you may celebrate! I will be taking a break until the New Year, so I will see you then! 

In the mean time, what is Christmas to you?
