Merry Christmas Poetry Friday! My celebration began last night at our Christmas Eve service. St. Nick visits each year and tells a story to the children. He also leaves candy in their shoes that they left at the church door. Since it was 80 degrees yesterday, their little bare feet did not get cold.
On Christmas Eve Eve, our choir with some children tag alongs went caroling at two local assisted living facilities. We brought Santa along. I love this picture of Baby Jacques cuddling up to Santa.
Tabatha Yeatts gathers names and addresses to spark a poetry exchange. I received a lovely package from Linda Baie in cold Colorado. She sent a poet’s set from our own Robyn Hood Black’s Etsy shop.
Linda crafted a black-out poem especially for me and mounted it on a Christmas collage. It’s lovely.

beam each one in his own way,
making others idle
for bad weather.
lined on the inside with flannel,
every one did something
for the season

This day was Christmas;
all day long, and
a holiday dinner

May you and yours enjoy this day and always the blessings of Christmas Joy.
