dyslexic christmas scene
stories told
of pasts i don't know
painted on the backdrop
of frozen evergreen
with open-windowed noises
whispering summers
have another drink
to new year's cheer
try to find
the peace
in turbulent air
as revelers count down
longing, far from home
i listen
for traces in the pause...
of comfort
i look
toward the unknown
standing in the shadows
of what was
answers in the flames
that burn
in the hearth
of my new year's

new moon sky
filled with
starry delight
cracks in heaven's floor
falls upon the shore
of nighttime's
winter dreams
moving slowly
in between
midnight thoughts
& slumbering nods
darkness holds
a long reign
with trails of stardust
in its wake
one single impression

a winter's day

late dawn peeking
a pink layer
across wind chill...
snuggle deeper
under down
a fire building
in the hearth
& heart
with steaming mug
in hand.
early twilight leaving
a wake of starry sky
candles lit
& vespers sung
a winter's day
is done.
one single impression

in quiet hush
hear the angel's
softly across
december twilight

wrapped in soft
by fire's warmth
winter content
in early dusk
candle glow
against the frost
while in the dark
snow gently falls
