The Tree Goes Up Today

Holiday Poems


Now, where did I put

those decorations last

year? Oh. In one corner

of the basement utility

closet - with the special

zip containers for

the bulbs.


Now, who is volunteering

to decocrate the pre-light

wrapped tree? No one.

Okay. I volunteer to 

light it up with no bulbs

or glass ornaments

or tinsel. I may break

down and put on the tree



As Christmas approaches,

someone may get the spirit

and trim that sucker.

I love this ritual. Even if

I love this ritual. Even if the kids are too old or don't I know they'll miss it mines late can't wait till 1st of Dec!  Christmas time is near and the world is full of good cheer! 

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

The Tree Is Up

I did not help - arthritic back and fingers - time for muscle relaxors. But it is beautiful. I taught them well. My favorite time of year. ~(:D)-

Lights are soothing to the psyche, neon in Times Square, trees in November through January 1st in cities everywhere they practice Christianity. May it be a season of peace. Happy holidays, Bishu - Stella
