Christmas time is near
Gather all your loved ones dear
Celebrate right here
~Julie Courtois, writer, poet
The peace of the season fills my soul.
Joy gently fills my being.
I smile as gratitude fills my heart.
Red flower so big;
I whacked down my poinsettia!
It will come around.
~Susanna Holman, artist
Christmas lights twinkle
In the night sky bells jingle
Santa’s on his way
~Susanna Holman, artist
WINTER SOLSTICE HAIKU POEMS
WINTER SOLSTICEHaiku by Beth Murphy, haiku & tanka poet
Newness of the day
Bursting forth reassurance

CHRISTMAS GIFTS~Julie Courtois, writer, poet
Peace I seek this Christmas time.
Hearts full of Love for Your’s and mine.
Kindness flowing everywhere,
showing just how much you care.
Alleluia is my chant.
I’ll sing it loud until I can’t.
So I’m sending Love to everyone
and I pray you’re happy when day is done.
What a gift this could be…
from me to you and you to me…
As the year comes to an end~Shannon DeAnna Schofield,
Time to reflect and see
Celebrate all my friends
Who saw this year with me
They held my hand each time I cried
We laughed most of the days
So grateful for them in my life
They help show me the way
December is for cool events
All for heart and home
It is not a time to quit
It is a time to roam
Let your mind wonder some
Of what has taken place
Though we all are on our own
Our friends will show us grace
Celebrate each day so far
All the times to remember
Know the Love that you are
Each day of this December.
poet, author, gardener beekeeper, b.2/23/1977
YOU ARE THE MIRACLE
…remember you are a Miracle.
You are loved and appreciated.
The miracle that is Christmas
is who you are
and how you share yourselves with others.
You have worked miracles
in the lives of others
and you continue to do so.
may the certainty
that you are a creative miracle
help you to keep sharing
your gifts with the world.
“Christmas is the day that holds all time together.”
~Alexander Smith, Scottish poet, 1829-1867
CHRISTMAS POINSETTIA POEM~Martha Stevens Grow, artist, calligraphist
Long considered the Christmas flower,
I will brighten your home for many an hour.
Cheerfully lighting your Christmas Eves,
Who would have thought my petals were leaves.
FUNNY POINSETTIA POEM
I have a poinsettia
It’s in a pot
I’ve had it 3 years
And like it a lot.
It’s pretty big now
Bout up to my middle
I cut it back in mid April.
To 4 inches…so little.
Its bright green now
But as the days become brief
The red color emerges
Above the green leaf.
To most they are just~Amalie Stoneman, artist, crafter
A throwaway plant
But I like them so much
I find that I can’t.
Believe in the magic!
“The joy of brightening other lives becomes for us the magic of the holidays.”

~Beth Murphy, writer, poet

us three kings

of good will

peace hope joy
for all time.
~Beth Murphy, writer, poet

A Christmas memories story poem.
THE BIG BOX NEXT TO THE CHRISTMAS TREE
The bathtub was filled with dainty, white bubbles, but not for me.
My unselfish mother, down on youthful knees,
Scrubbed the family’s clothes a lemony clean.
A found wringer-washer that my industrious dad repaired,
And regally my mom stood with a delighted air.
We longed for her, but never once did she despair.
A large box dressed with a shiny, red bow,
Patiently waited next to the Christmas tree for about a week or so.
Our clever dad shared his secret with us, and our joy for our mom we never did show.
For all that time, until that day,
My brothers and I for ourselves did not care, I’d say.
It was in the new washing machine for our hard working mom all our excitement laid.
The moment was here: only one last present to see.
The large box with the shiny red bow waiting next to the Christmas tree.
“Open it, Mom,” we shouted our pleas!
Her dark eyes gleamed,
As she deferred the unwrapping to me and my brothers three.
We tore at the paper and the shiny red bow unceremoniously.
We ran to our mom and eagerly asked, “Aren’t you happy?”
She laughed sobs of tears,
“Most happy! Now turn around and see.”
We looked at our mom wonderingly.~Teresa Basaldua, artist, retired elementary teacher, boondocker-traveling US w/husband
We then looked at the large box standing next to the Christmas tree.
We turned to look at our dad, sitting there smugly.
For the big box standing bare next to the Christmas tree was our very first color TV!
