Christmas on Display

It is a magical time when adults are children again,

Excitement is in the air; it’s time for the season to begin,

The world is made new with snow, carols, and lights,

It is a time for smiles, curiosity, new found delights,

As shoppers browse and look down every aisle,

They think of loved ones and what could bring smiles,

Each gift, real and imagined, is eagerly sought,

Checked off and compared, before it is bought,

Perfumes, delicately misted on the inside of wrists,

Waft fragrances of desire, evoke love to exist,

Shirt and tie combinations with matching hues,

Suggest dinner engagements and ocean cruise,

Adults use magic to impress with fancy things,

Diamonds and gold, expensive watches and rings,

Lingerie is checked for eye-catching appeal,

For lovers unsure how much skin to reveal,

It is a time of seeing the world through others’ eyes,

But the goal is keeping love alive, not the surprise,

New beginnings for some or memories of times past,

The season for showing love is here; the die is cast,

Love’s awesome power, which holds so much sway,

Will be represented by gifts, all on display.

    1. Even for those with little money, Christmas is a special time of the year. I posted a story from my childhood last year that tells what my early Christmas days were like. Now I live alone in a big house and Christmas is good but not as warm as a house full of people who love each other. For the story I’ve provided a link. http://poetsenvy.wordpress.com/2009/12/09/christmas-and-the-scrub-tree/

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. It’s one of those magical things. I knew you had fine taste in perfumes, but Shalimar was special.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
