Dearest Friends Near and Far, * *
Your words are like snowflakes. *
Falling lightly from the sky, * *
Sparkling in the hazy sun, * *
Landing on my upturned face. * * * *
* * * * * * * * ** * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
I try to capture your soft flakes with my tongue,
But they stick to my eyelashes instead, tickling me.
The cold turns my cheeks rosy, and my lips numb.
I can’t contain all the giggles your light touch brings.
Your airy flakes pile up, one on top of another.
I jubilantly throw myself into them, roll on my back,
Making an angel with my outstretched arms.
I jump up, and brush off, flakes flying.
My winter clothes, warmed by my thoughts,
Melt some of your flakes adhering them to me.
I bend, press the powdery fluff, making a ball.
I toss it in the air, squealing gleefully as it scatters.
I roll your flakes into a tighter ball, bigger and bigger,
Patting the flakes, packing them firmly, a rotund base.
Then I gather in new flakes, and roll them into a ball.
Then join the two parts of my snowman together. Pat. Pat.
A head for my new snowman, and I’m done.
Some features, decorations – a touch of originality.
I stand back grinning ear to ear, admiring my work.
I dance with ecstasy for my temporary masterpiece.
So your words are to me.
Joyous, to be played with,
And share for the world to see
Innocent and full of laughter.
Merry Christmas to all of you, my friends and my delights,
I give thanks this holiday season to my Lord,
For all of you who bring great joy to my life.
May the Lord richly bless you and keep you.
Love and hugs,
Cyber and real,
Marsha Lee 🙂
