Christmas Delights

The rebirth
Of a nation’s migrant soul
In the
Nick of time; catching
The festive cheer

You came
Into my life, like the
Guardian angel
In hot pants; bearing...
Christmas gifts from the heart

She dances
To the sound of a different
Drum; unleashing
The free spirit within…
Frisky moon

‘Tis the season
Of fun, laughter and
Goodwill
In the field of dreams
Let’s feed the hungry child

She discovered
The mesmerizing rhythm of
Retail therapy
Nurturing the Christmas spirit
Drunk with the elixir of life

The naked poet found
A new lease on life, one
Christmas
Day, sweet triumph
Of the humble soul
