The Christmas tree was real
That heavy tinsel, special feel

So many lights, in sparkling view
Glass ornaments, hung neatly too

And angel perched, atop it all
Beaming down, it did not fall

The tree was watered in its stand
Its special smell, came on so grand

Nativity, was always perched
In middle window, all would search

Side windows dressed, with candlelight
I'd check the view, from sidewalk sight

All was right, this child felt sure
That special time, lived in his door

I thank you God, for visions past
Which come alive, to hold and grasp

Evocative memories of christmas past. I especially like the last two lines, they make everything gel. And b.t.w welcome to passions, I hope you enjoy your time here.

This was great. I liked this poem very much. Welcome to Passions......hope to see you more often.



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!

I love the verbally vivid poems like this one, where you can actually see what is described in your mind's eye.  Beautiflly written and described of Visions past.
