THE CELEBRATION TREE

Updated: Jan 20


And suddenly a tree appeared *our humble Christmas memory tree

Out of nowhere,

As if it had been there all along,

Or perhaps in a box.

With and Angel atop,

It’s brilliance

Brought instant Joy

To my heart

For the tree carried

A thousand trumpeting lights

And as many colorful hanging memories,

Memories of Christmas past,

Christmas present,

And Alas,

At last, it forbode Christmas old.

A tiny tear

Awakened me

From my blury-eyed stare,

Reminding me

To savor each year’s

Christmas,

Miss none,

Everyone,

For the child returns in each of us

Each and every year,

To once again decorate and celebrate

The other Child being born,

The reason we are gathered here

Round tensiled tree adorned.

“Merry Christmas Everyone!”

Alas, my good people, for I give you poetry, photos, prose, tradition, rhyme, tempo, rhythm and song of an army of trees Christmas!
