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

We have entered the Christmas season:
twelve days of receiving…

On the Seventh Day of Christmas
we received
the end of a circle around the sun
and the beginning of another.
We ended the year
together,
aware of the challenges and glories—
gifts all—
that attended the last twelve months.
We look toward a new year
with thoughtful consideration
for how we can best express
Love,
Truth,
Beauty,
Peace.

May this be a circle around the sun
when we live on this wondrous planet
in ways that all can thrive.
