DECEMBER’S LIGHT by Eileen Spinelli


It’s the slanted light of a silver star,

  soft candlelight in a quiet room.

  It’s lantern light from house to barn

  swaying bright against the gloom.

  It’s the light of home across the miles.

  It’s the puddled light of moon-on snow.

  It’s the light in eyes…in smiles…in hearts.

  It’s the sweetest light of all I know.

 Robert L. Zammarchi sent in this next Christmas Poem with his illustration of a frolicking holiday pup.

I never want to lose my sense of wonder
because it sets me free
I always want to go beyond the yonder
as wild as it may be
I only want to fly through glistening snowflakes
lead me to the sky
I always want to hold close those dear to me
so many reasons why
I only want to live inside the moment
upon this Christmas Day
I always want to look into tomorrow
thankful for today


Thank you Eileen, Carol, and Rob for the Christmas cheer. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day. Merry Christmas!
