On the Eve
came the Christmas promise:
“Love.
Peace.
Let it Come.”

We have entered the Christmas season:
twelve days of receiving.
Day One, Christmas Day,
visit from an uncle
and some of the young ones
Will grew up with.
We offered a little banana cake
and cheesecake;
they brought warm memories.
Together,
we renewed our bonds of family
and friendship.
Day Two,
some quiet time
with a sister-in-law
and Will
watching the birds at the feeders
(a Chickadee!)
and the alpacas, cats and goats
at play (we think.)
Telling stories
and making plans.
We renewed our delight in
and need for
each other.
Day Three on the morrow…
