Greetings




we
wish you
a happy holiday,
familiar faces with eyes
smiling, the comfort of hugs,
scent of cinnamon and allspice
cakes plumped with raisins, and mugs
 of mulled cider, rooms lit with candles, red
winter flowers or berries with green leaves,
favourite songs, board games, or long walks
in the forest knowing all these trees are
yours or that you belong to them
while birds flit 
to and from 
a feeder as
though time
itself is a celebration and all the world 
filled with joy
