Christmas Floats

Christmas Floats

written by: Fotoula Reynolds

 

Light, shade and perspective
On the wings of white butterflies
Sunday’s roses resurrect everything

Peonies rest unaligned and
Courtesy blooms unashamedly
In petals of periwinkle-blue

Under a poinsettia-red sky
A Garden-Star-of-Bethlehem
Flowers in the frankincense air

Pine needles pirouette to ground
Myrtle branches swing in time
And Christmas floats on earth

In Nazareth’s dead of night
The son of God is born
Oh, how the world glows
