This is for you Severn, who has entered our family, never to leave! You can't escape us now!!! (lol) And I'm sorry about upsetting you before....

against my forbidding tide
you come
& spread easy in my privacy.
you lend me
words of magic
books of things I had
dreamed but never read.
you gave me sense
when I wavered
& refused to let my isolation
be a barrier to your caring.

still uneasy now with you,
unused to such familiarity,
such acknowledgement of pain,
I sit beside you
in a bowl of family warmth
where your tree ornaments
are as valuable &
memorable
as all of ours:

beautiful brave Severn,
come put your decorations
among ours on the tree.
It is our love
that binds them
to a unity.

My darling friend.
You don't know what this means.
Christmas is a rather lonely time and this is so beautiful for me.
Angela, it is not the small box of ornaments I keep from my childhood that represent christmas but the people who I love - and you and your family have become such.
This tribute brought tears and smiles and told me I am truly welcome.
And I am not that brave - I need people like you to give me strength!!!

Thankyou, Sea.

Connections of ornaments made of love I see betweeen you.  Severn and Seaangel I wish I could give you both a real hug--so dear you are and so adroit with words.  

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
