Christmas Poems

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

*

Sunday morning
all the lovely voices
singing Silent Night

*

reading one page
at a time
of this book and that
evergreens
in gentle wind

*

new year
on the horizon
simple lines
of barns and trees
in the fog

*

looking at trees
I remember prayers
of friends
