…or perhaps I was simply overwhelmed by the task of writing a meaningful piece to capture the spirit of the holiday season. So instead I offer you, dear reader, this poem to highlight the simple beauty that is often overlooked in the rush and chaos of December.
A baby boy born
Eight lights on a winters night
Solstice moon shines high
However you celebrate this Holiday, may you be blessed with the light and love of the season surrounded by family and friends and grateful for all life’s blessings.
Happy Holidays to all!
