o tannenbaum – December 22


warm lights, tree decor,

ornaments with names

of children and hopes



fifteen years, long term,

anniversary, child born,

power ranger orb, etched

silver cradles.


birth of the One matching

births of our own. family

story evoked  and shared



we hold hands and gaze

with wonder at what has

happened, thankful for

the now.
