A Christmas Eve Memory by tony baksa



A navy blue sky
Snow like white confetti
A crisp slice of yellow moon
Cold, still, expectant air

Tucked in brand new pajamas
Awestruck by the multi colored lights
On the icicle laden spruce
Wanting it all to last just a little bit longer

The grown ups off to midnight mass
Sleepy kids denying slumber
Hot chocolate and buttered toast
Prolongs the magic

Silent Night and Jingle Bells
Provide the soundtrack to the dreams
Of Christmas morning soon to come
But not just yet - more hot chocolate

And now the moment beckons
A yawn, a nod, a sudden jerk
So off to bed
A fine surrender

A door opening
Soft voices
Back from mass

Ah, now to settle
Warm and smitten
A perfect night
Christmas Eve
