Somewhere in my grown up heart
exists a child full of wonder and the glimmer
who still “ooo’s and ahhs” over
twinkling lights on Christmas trees
and longs for that early Christmas morning
crisp and clear… where, in pajamas and socks,
the family settles in on the old worn sofa
presents wrapped and glowing under
the stings of lights still hanging on the tree.
I am still that child,
still exploring and uncovering this
majestic mystery of the Yule tide.
