holiday scenes

it is december, the time of joy, peace, and happiness
i am home, on the eve of the christmas holiday
full of life, our christmas tree reflects in the window
bright lights and memories cover each branch
i stop and gaze at my dog
she is sleeping, dreaming of sugarplums and bones
gazing out the window, into the darkness, warmth surrounds
the chill on the window panes
snow, a sight many never see, sits softly on the ground,
on the trees, in the street,
sparkling, the white glows
a boy walks by with a sled,
his hands must be freezing, his nose quite red
i rejoice in this time, at this place, exactly this moment
and listen to the sounds
of this breathtaking night
