Poem — Christmas Pieces

New awakenings cinched to old pains

time spent tossing time lost overboard

warm slivers of candy bubbling

savorings of sweet relishes

passersby watching the merrymakings of chocolate swatches

dressings of jelly-flavored laces and ribbons

shawls and letter-stapled children

bracelets and bangles

rings of beaded fancy

feathered friends amid baskets of pressed flowers

dots of gladness

crocheted handkerchiefs atop blankets for pets

sharing, teasing, and pleasing

bottomless banqueting

treasured painted boxes of today and yesteryear

redecorating tomorrow
