A Christmas Collage

A Christmas Collage
is what she designs
and yet the picture
is far more refined.

There are photos aplenty,
but that's just the tip
of emotions run rampant
in every single clip.

I see family,
traditions, symbols and more.
I feel love in the spaces
that she carefully stores.

Here is a tree
and there is the hearth.
Stockings lie waiting
and cookies tempt anyone's girth.

Ah, but see all the smiles!
I feel them inside.
My heart swells with the season
and a motherly pride.

This Christmas I am gifted
with a present so pure -
my daughter's sweet innocence
and our love that endures.

December Grey

line the world in steel
erase all the blunt edges
sink into silence
