A holiday poem AND my 2015 gift suggestion list! πŸ™‚

How the time is flying…

Happy Shopping and Holidays πŸ™‚


first of
brought thoughts
of Christmas magic.
The Day, so soon to arrive.
Our expectations ran high.
Through snow days and blizzards.
Making a list and checking it twice.
Santa’s letter printed and ready to mail.
Christmas baking: heady, wonderful aromas.
Pageants at school, with costumes of many colors.
The tall lush evergreen, centerpiece of the season.
We decorated so carefully; each bough lovingly adorned.
With some old, some new, every one used and none forgotten.
The long days of dark December. Finally, homework complete.
Sitting in the darkened living room; time alone to drift away.
Marvelling at the masterpiece of lights and shining ornaments.
Gazing far beyond to the bliss to follow. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
Christmas eve: midnight mass and carolling.Treats aplenty!
Then the long awaited, special treasures.
The secrets of shining boxes and ribbons.
Finally revealed and always worth the wait.
Off to sleep…

  1. it came as a shock to realise that it’s just six weeks to Christmas. I can’t believe the year is almost done – time certainly flies.

  2. Geraldine, I absolutely love your suggestions of gift ideas for the holidays, especially the book on Reiki. Can you believe how quickly the holidays are approaching this year? And being in retail, they always seem to fly by even quicker. However, I try very hard to savor the moments leading up to them and enjoy.

    Hope you’re having a super Sunday, my friend!


  3. Lovely holiday poem and a great list of gift ideas too.

  4. Wonderful poem and memories. Love the way it’s made in the form of a Christmas tree. πŸ™‚
