An Ode to Christmas Trees

images (1)I salute  Christmas trees

With an ode to all trees be they stubby or tall,

Real or fake,

Green or sparkly silver for

All trees are creative signs of hope.

Lit with tiny lights,

Each light a flaming symbol to new life.

It does not matter if we are secret cynics the rest of the year;

Christmas trees are metaphors for family warmth and celebrations,

Evoking Christmas past,

Radiant as Christmas present and

Promising Christmases yet to come.

  1. Beautiful! We’ve gone out to cut our tree down as a family every year since we had our first child and now we have seven. Wonderful memories!
