Short Advent Poems

Christmas CDs
playing with the volume low
in the fields
the beauty of harvested
corn in snow

Northern sun
shines on frozen beach
still the days grow shorter
shadow of poinsettia
on the wall

lighting the
Christmas candle
tiny flame
transforms
the night

Christmas night sky
becomes sunrise
tree branches
covered with ice
glisten in the sun

snowflakes
floating in the air
separate
together
artists
across places
and time

Quiet Christmas Poetry

“lighting the Christmas candle” was also published by Hermitage (2005) and The Writers’ Bistro (2007).
