The Season of Light

when it gets cold enough

to freeze moisture in the air

‘diamond dust’ sparkles, dancing

and prancing outside—

 

girls laughing inside

tiny lights on a tree

 

decorations

shimmer

 

a striped wooden stocking hung next

to the gingerbread nativity: man and woman

(married in December), a child

snuggled close to a handmade angel

with a shiny trumpet

 

sounding

 

when water appears (not un-strangely)

as diamonds spinning

through time
