Christmas, Trees, and Memories

Christmas is nearly upon us, time for me to wish all my Wikinut friends peace, brotherhood and joy...

Decorations and Window Panes

As I stand looking out my kitchen window,
Marking the years, feeling the season,
Listening to the cold winter wind blow...
Through a burly mist of swirling white snow,
Silver moonlight glistens.

Beyond the Holly

Somewhere in the wandering drifts of my mind-
That silhouetted light and shadow,
Becomes memories making the wonder of a
Christmas tree's soft glow.




Silent Carolers

Here the wind grows still within the night;
Trees are robed in white,
Mirrored in delight beneath the moon.
Icicle bright the forest stands,
A glorious silent chorus,
Shining in a hallelujah of praise!

In Closing

Nice poem and some beautiful pictures, but let's not forget what Christmas really represents--the Birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

..let each day's ending be a silent prayer'
it just doesn't get any better than this my dear friend * thank you so much.
With very best wishes to you
Mike and the family for a peaceful blessed and very
Happy Christmas

Good morning, Delicia; thank you for sharing your words and photos. They both reminded me of Christmas as a child in Indiana and looking out the window at the silent beauty of the season. We do not have that in the south, so I'll look to others like yourself who share it with me. ~Marilyn

The gift of capturing the festive season so well is a joy to read my friend.. We have had no snow down in my part of the world at all, though a few frosty nights, but mainly rain, rain rain..
You have reminded me just how much the season plays its part in creating such an atmospheric and charming Star page.. Beautiful images Delicia. \0/xxxx

I was just snooping around and came upon your Christmas page, it made me think how fast the summer has past. The garden is done and the last bottles vegetables have been put up and put away, the nights are cool and gray, but your poetry seems so warm to me. Oh I will miss spring.

Utah Jay...! Spring will be here again... past the snow hills and over the white washed sky of always...it slumbers in the buttercup fields of childhood dreams and yet it waits to eagerly bloom in the heart of the growing old...:0)...thanks Utah Jay for stopping by to visit my page...your book is amazing...keep well and always keep writing... :0)
