Fluffy white snow is falling;
roof tops, gardens and evergreen
trees become white jewels in the
landscape glittering in the
Colour blooms within every
home; tinsel, lights and family
members stressing over tangled
Christmas lights and tarnished
bobbles that were once shiny
Christmas trees dominate every
home but each one unique for
no person decorates the same;
some are tatty but still loved
all the same then yet others
are beautiful and perfect but
rarely truly appreciated.
Slowly an assortment of presents
grow at the feet of the tree,
each one covered in glittering
paper and ribbons.
Joy spreads like wildfire when
one hears carols sung, many
bring back memories of childhood;
smiles form instantly for the magic
of Christmas captures us all for
we all have an inner child that
erases all maturity regardless of age –
the magic of Christmas?
It’s alive in everyone.
