Easy Christmas (a poem)

take a moment to forgive
and skip long lines

pass on short tempers
and our daily grinds

take time to remember
frigid winters
-late December

wonder at the majesty
and peace there is to see

Feast?
-yes feast
and give like you've never given

Sing?
-yes sing
the song your soul has written


Love?
-yes love
like no other
without measure

Indulge?
-yes indulge
in His being
and His pleasure

believe in the smiles
of all the children in the world
red and yellow
black and white
the boys and the girls

hope for their peace
sincerity less the peril

manifest a silent night
pen for them a new carol

bless and empower them to love
and love deeply

Free?
-yes free them
to breathe
and breathe easy
