Christmastime is Joy


by Drew Conger


smiles are most common,

laughter pervades sweet silence.

christmastime is joy.


dancing through snowfall,

smiles sprinkled by snowflakes,

bright eyes and cold toes.


gathered ‘round the fire,

hot chocolate warms joyful souls.

christmastime is warmth.


reminiscence of

sweet joyous memories of

christmases long past.


a peaceful silence.

christmastime is radiant,

cheerful remembrance.
