A Time Of Joy
The array of crescent shapes
are magnificent in the blackness of the room.
You watch Christmas lights dance
recalling younger days
made by robust children.
Memories won’t escape you;
they haunt your soul.
Breezes from uncaulked window panes
make silver tinsel sway from branches.
When you light the candles on the angel chimes
bells twirling around the flames
are like whispering voices.
Tree lights are sparkling,
tinsel is blowing,
bells are chiming.
You sit mesmerized
pretending Christmas is a time of joy.
