Christmas Cheers To You!

Christmas Cheers To You!


May your days be brightpoetry, Christmas, fun

a writing cove filled with light

fingers on keyboards tapping

clever new verses rapping


traditionalists are singing

with jingle bells ringing

the children are playing

bursting and braying


anxious reindeers barking

with Santa and Elves harking

keeping their fears at bay

joining the merry fray


offering you my cheer

a sacred blessing for the year

given from a loving heart

is a beautiful start


Christmas Cheer, family, funThis photo was taken a couple of years ago while playing with my nephew and Mom watching. I miss my family, but won’t be headed to Virginia to see them this holiday. I’m reminding myself to get out, play and serve. The best cure for a lonely heart is to sing, dance, play or offer some cheer. By giving freely, we often find the true meaning of Christmas. Thanks for all the love, encouragement and friendship that you have given me this year. A joyful gift and blessing indeed.  🙂  

May your blessings be multiplied with a loving heart.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!

  1. Fun and engaging poem Brad, thanks for sharing. However, the real message for me lies in your short paragraph at the end – by giving freely, we often find the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you for the reminder and may your holidays continue to be filled with joy, happiness, and warmth my friend 😉

  2. Thanks for your continued support and kindness Dave. I agree about the message and enjoy sharing reflections on my life and/ or poems with folks. I’ve enjoyed getting to know you our blogs and appreciate your uplifting messages. I hope your holidays are filled with much love, joy and family time. 🙂


  3. You’re most welcome Cynthia. It’s good to remind myself of fun and family, both of which I’d like add more in 2015. I had fun ‘decorating’ my blog, along with my home for the holidays. 🙂
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!


  4. Thank you, dear friend for all the encouragement and appreciation you showed to me. I’m grateful and filled with a piece of same Light you carry in your heart. Christmas has different colors while it’s a time for introspection, but also for sharing and giving love. For you, Christmas became a state of mind.
    I wish you love, peace, and inspiration! May your wings touch our spirit in the same great way this end of December and the years to come.
