Christmas Day

Christmas day

can you hear the bells ring

sitting around the Christmas tree

may you have a merry time

being a part of a family

may each gift bring joy

let the season of good will

bring love into your home

as the neighbours come round

or seeing close friends

greeting loved ones

let this time never end

the festivities have just begun

food is on the table

wine is being poured

crackers are pulled

best wishes bestowed upon all

Fire Escape

starlight during the day

I hear her call

moonlight shines down

I see her fall

escape down a fire escape

to hide from them all

embrace dreams

to hold a candle too

reposition life

to a standstill

beckon forth from within

thirst for knowledge

the key to begin

A flock of sparrows

I saw a flock of sparrows

as they passed over my garden

they formed a shape an arrow

as if to point the way

bringing about a commotion

they traveled above

stirring up chaos

reminding the over birds

that we who journey in the skies

have but one purpose

for each and everyone of us

to follow them as they fly by
