Christmas Sedoka


From garage returned

what was put away is down

a bin talked about yearly

family Christmas

the children should find at home

knick knacks and lights on the tree.


Out of nights darkness

children can hear the sleigh bells

sounds of reindeer on the roof

hopeful that a gift

a secret yearly desire

will lie in package by a fire.


A year of waiting

for the day every winter

when family gathers and smiles

around red and green

lit Christmas tree and cocoa

“Santa is coming to town.”


Waiting for Santa

the kids know he never sleeps

thrives off those hot chocolate smiles

never rests his head

with a gift to be given

a slice of warm Pecan Pie.


From Rocky Mountains

to sea where winter breeze blows

night falls upon the winter

snowed in Christmas home

Santa finds us through the snow

following path of our lights.


Christmas around the world

a blanket of warmth in cold

patchwork quilt of family

sharing gifts with love

care for each shiny trinket

a twinkle in a child’s eye.



Eater of cookies

that strange old man Santa Claus

who lives now upon our shelves

with hands on belly

each eye like reflective snow

this mystical jolly elf.


Though my face hides thoughts

I cannot hide excitement

every December first

with first winter snow

begin to long for Christmas

with only one month to go.


Waiting for Santa

that strange old man Santa Claus

smells of cinnamon and spice

with first winter snow

care for each shiny trinket

with a gift to be given.


A nutcracker stands

another different color

work with mechanical jaw

to open Walnuts

that sit in green and red bowl

on Pointsetta tablecloth.


Pointsetta in snow

falling away from myself

in drifts of decoration

precious place to hide

a place for gifts under tree

a time to believe and wish.


Kids born after me

will enjoy peaceful Christmas

whether one travels or stays

feathery pillow

smell of cinnamon and spice

of fresh baked sugar cookies.

    This brings back nostalgic memories of when my kids were little and when my siblings and I were little. You express the magic and wonder of Christmas, Jamie, in a delightful way. Well done, my friend.
