He Came

Standard

As the chickadee finds its nest,


among the prickly leaf…


The labored Mother sighs


as birthing finds relief…




Then nature joins a chorus,


among the star they sing…


Humanity realized His birth


of the Resurrection King…




He came among the world


in quiet winter’s rest…


Chickadee without notice


continues to make his nest…

CHRISTMAS TEA

Standard

Brown aroma filters through

the porcelain pot wrapped in

a  holiday Christmas print

Tea covey placed around,

Tied at the top with a green ribbon.

Pouring into the cup the sound

of generations past of many pourings,

expressed  within generations,

a knowing of shared time.

The warmth of the spiced tea

brings smiles caused by conversations,

of simpler  relationships in an eloquent

fluent exchange of Christmas gentilityChristmas Tea photo
