A Wish

holidays times are for joy and reflection,
hoping our errant, spinning world regains
its sense of direction.
that kindness becomes a contagion
spreading throughout the years.
and that our hopes and wishes
do not fall on non-listening

so while we celebrate all
the beauty
that we see,
we also honor those who
with us,
cannot be.
and pray for those who will
someday take our place.
and hope they inherit a
healthier, happier

love and light.
peace-filled days
and blissful

let us raise a glass to those who care,
those who go that extra mile,

    My idea of celebrating the holiday season, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: being compassionate, KIND & loving others (both animals & humans!) Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus or Christmas to do that? Whatever you happen to believe @ this time of year~may it be merry & bright!
