coldest season
fun to see Christmas lights
and drink hot cocoa by the fire
sparkling snowflakes gliding to my front yard
covering the green grass with snow
But we shall not forget
our Savior's birth

Gasping ...
The year drew in
Months, weeks and days, anew -
Filled its lungs with the breaths of life,
Hope, promise and endeavor coursed its veins,
Feeding want, deed and wisdom, now ...
It exhales lost shadows,
Weeps and expires ...

Winter -
the shortest day
begins the coldest time
of this earth's well defined seasons,
and hibernation settles where needed
until the sun returns again
to mark a new season
and warm away

the world spun round and hearts

of this world born in a manger beneath 
His guiding star in Bethlehem. 
The Word became flesh and

reverent, organized,
peaceful—will stand out in contrast
to casual get-togethers where we

To look 
upon His face, 
hold in my craving arms, 
seek his divine grace and favor.
I'd spread my wings and sing a Cherub hymn. 
The Seraphim angels' harps would 
strum melodies paying
homage to our 
God's son.
