CHRISTMAS GIFTS - for contest

CHRISTMAS GIFTS Churches – fill with cameo believers, He sits outside shivering in the cold, Returning to the fold - self deceivers Immune to fate - no battered cup to hold. Snow swirls in mystic funnels lacking faith Tantalizing visions adrift in space Manic angels praying with homeless wraith Acknowledging the cold and simple grace Sheltering in the hearts of troubled souls. God’s creatures seeking welcome to their home Iconoclasts long beached on credos shoals Frozen hearted pretenders to love’s throne Touched by the spirited tones of the bell Swaddled in snowflakes where snow angels fell. 12/13/2015 submitted to – A Christmas Sonnet Acrostic – Poetry Contest sponsor – Andrea Dietrich
