Christmas Renga 

Springs Of Holly

winter evening...
holiday lights reflect
in the window,
will that special
day ever come?                     vs

sprigs of holly
for the advent wreath
on the table
a cup of hot cocoa
warms my hands                      kk

Christmas eve...
friends and family arrive
bringing gifts,
joy-filled hearts cozy
around a glowing fireplace          vs

karaoke machine,
I try to remember the words
to Silent Night
a platter of rum balls
seems to be missing . . .            kk

special morning...
all the gifts are arranged
under the tree
what a relief! no coal
in my stocking                          vs

season's greeting,
a hand-made sweater
from grandma
the feeling of love
always near                              kk

December, 2006
