Christmas Morning – 2020

Was this the magic of Christmas
or just a snowy wintertime –
this memory of mine
awakening just before sunrise
to a world soft and silent
that soon began to sparkle
with the dawn

moments like this, sacred
with a sense of peace and joy
so deep and all-encompassing
only reverent silence can convey

Sometimes I feel it still
reminding me of what
is glowing within us all
pulsing with the possibility
of the worlds we can create

Sending wishes of peace and joy to all this morning  💜

  1. For the first time in years, I woke up this morning to a white Christmas. “Was this the magic of Christmas or just a snowy wintertime?” The reality is that this is a Covid Christmas and, if we’re responsible, we’re not having large gatherings of family and friends….so, may I offer the “magic” of Christmas past (and future):

  2. Carol, have a merry and a happy and be safe.

    Tubularsock has always loved snow until Tubularsock had to move it!

    But sitting watching it fall with a nice hot drink in Tubularsock’s hand, now that is bliss.

    1. Thank you for your always kind words, Bob. My Christmas was certainly white and peaceful. The gift from my daughter and granddaughter was their visit outside, shoveling snow from the front sidewalk and a bag of food they left on the doorstep from the only gas station open on Christmas afternoon. Sending warm wishes. 💜
