Christmas Poem

It’s all smiles
In the refugee street, this
Christmas morn
A neophyte dressed
As Santa Claus

She walked into
Eden with Christmas
Gifts from the gods
Sharing the joy with the poor
And the homeless

With angelic
Voice and limpid eyes
She sang
The Christmas carols
From the heart…

Cool cats
In a feeding frenzy
Devouring the
Mystical fruit…in full
View of the Christmas moon

Surprise gift
In my Christmas stocking
A dazzling
Songbird of the realm…
Why am I so blessed?

The beloved daughter
Of Eve in her Christmas best
The first noel…
Under the mistletoe
