christmas envelopes – December 14


writing names on christmas

envelopes, faces, families

emerging to affect my choice

of card.


not all the same, the couple,

the baby, indian wise men

from afar, telling of hopes and

fears, friends past and now.


to choose a word, touch a

face, if only in memory.

movements of grace in

the moment of cards.
