Merry Mashup

Merry Mashup
Christmas, lights, poetry


a tangle of glories

wrapped in silly stories

you better be nice

Santa knows your vice


tots wrangling for toys

glittering dolls for boys

construction sets for girls

the genders have twirls


a time for inclusion

beyond the illusion

underneath the stories

masks and glories


let the Christmas spirit shine

mature as a fine wine

savor the flavor of love

embrace peace like a dove


may your spirits be bright

on this solstice night

open those magic doors

from my heart to yours


During the frenzy of the holidays, gift giving, celebrations, etc, may we remember to celebrate the light. The winter solstice has historically been a time to celebrate the seasons and passing of the light.

Too often we seek happiness, love, and satisfaction in the outer world. As we go about our holiday traditions, may we take time to nurture our inner light and share that brilliance with the world. Much more than gifts, what we really have to give to the world is our presence and our love.

Shine your light!
