training wheels – December 20

12.20.2014

angels and santas

on the tree

training wheels

for believing

 

that goodness

cares, that we’d

better not pout

or coal in our

stocking is a

bigger big story

 

that someone’s

taking notes and

names that will

matter in the end

 

that someone

actually wants

us to be happy

and that gifts

are what’s really

real about life

 

that reindeer maybe

don’t really fly or

elves come down

chimneys

 

but goodness

somehow does.
