Bethlehemtide

perceive one twinkle
in a cumulus night sky?

or thy thoughts
with open sails
listening
as far as can hear th’ ear?

fingertips from hope?
but hope, nonetheless

with glitter to ornament
Heaven’s face
and ours

with reasons to smile
again

Merry Christmas & A Happy 2020

                                       ‘tis not but
                                       “that time of the year again”
                                       when memory needs
                                       reminding—
                                       be it shar’d for all seasons—
                                       a whisper of the heart
                                       on all humanity—
                                       till is spun to a snowflake
                                       the Sun’s golden cocoon
                                       and she flies away
                                       as night
