'Twas the Day After Christmas

Tree dressed
Decorations hung
Gifts bought
Cards sent

Nativity plays seen
Mulled wine sipped
Concerts watched
Mince pies gone

Services led
Carols sung
Friends met
Family gathered

Presents unwrapped
Turkey eaten
Dishes done
Leftovers recycled

Time to stop
Time to reflect
Christmas 2011
How it has touched me

A starry sky
A candle lit church
Recalling the story
With glimpses anew

Valuing what I have
Remembering those in need
Engaging that bit deeper
With the unfathomable depth of love.
Linda Stevens December 2011
