Peace I seek this Christmas time.♥️ 
Hearts full of Love for Your’s and mine.

Kindness flowing everywhere,
showing just how much you care.

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…

Christmas poem; peace, love, joys poem


As the year comes to an end
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.

~Shannon DeAnna Schofield,
poet, author, gardener beekeeper, b.2/23/1977


This Christmas…
…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.

This season,
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.”

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.

~Martha Stevens Grow, artist, calligraphist


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
A throwaway plant
But I like them so much
I find that I can’t.

~Amalie Stoneman, artist, crafter


Believe in the magic!
~Louise DeBell

“The joy of brightening other lives becomes for us the magic of the holidays.”
~WC Jones

Christmas Memories

A Christmas memories story poem.


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.
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!
