Christmas Eve

I am feeling rather nostalgic..and it might have something to do with the fact that it is snowing outside, and it is Christmas Eve and I didn’t think we were going to have snow. But no mater the reason,my heart is overflowing with love and happiness. I wrote a poem for one of my classes, but I remember while in the draft process I really wanted it to turn out nice, and different. I accomplished this, in a small way. But I had a “If you give a mouse a cookie” moment. I couldn’t just post my poem, because my poem isn’t just lines, of specific stanza’s and a rhyme to it.

So because it is #throwbackthrusday  I had to add a few pictures 🙂 Merry Christmas 🙂

 

So is this Christmas?

Is this Christmas?

Wet, mudded ground from days of snow’s before.

Warm winds that blew across my face, once more.

__

Is Christmas, the feet of snow that falls?

Is Christmas the jingle bells and twinkling lights?

Is Christmas the tree, and the ornament balls?

Is Christmas the sugar cookies, and chocolate fudge?

__

Is this Christmas?

Not a snowflake insight, no snow dusting the ground.

No frost to sting my nose, no ice on the pond.

__

Is Christmas, the cards and letters that need to be sent?

Is Christmas, the hectic drivers and the busy shoppers?

Is Christmas, Santa, the reindeer and a big present?

Is Christmas, that songs we belt on Christmas day? 

__

Maybe this Christmas will feel like the past.

Maybe this Christmas won’t look like the others.

Maybe a Christmas, the birth for the outcast.

Maybe a Christmas, on that very first night.

__

A Stable, because there was no room. 

A manger, that sheep and cows ate food.

A baby to foreshadow death and a tomb.

A Christmas night, not so long ago.

__

Christmas might not have snow this year.

but Christmas has love, agape love.

Christmas might not always have holiday cheer.

but Christmas always came, from above.
