Heaven’s Christmas Celebration

by 50djohnson

Poetry challenge: Christmas poem.

 


 

I caught a glimpse of Heaven’s Christmas in my dream the other day,

Of angels playing on the sun in such a childlike way.

Swinging on the crescent moon, singing of Christ’s Birth,

I realized it was Christmas,  high above the earth.

Words cannot describe the colors of prisms sparkling glow,

For only glorious colors reflecting were seen here below.

Watching Jeannie,  Mom and Dad  sitting at Jesus feet,

Made the wonderful Christmas dream nearly complete.

Got Turkey…?

by Colly

Fowl play on Christmas day.
Bird won’t thaw for anything.
The birth of the gizzard delays.
Purple sacks still frozen inside.

Christmas Snow

by jaybluepoems

Today, in winter’s first day glory,
I’ve walked ‘neath frozen giants, gold,
held to sun in morning’s story
with midnight’s snow and breezes cold.

By brook in babbling, thawing chorus,
amidst the chirp of Christmas birds,
we pause in awe at sights before us
and listen still for nature’s words.

Christmas Sonnet

by Morgan

noel

 

Beyond the barren, desperate plains,

The Weary, Calling to Heaven from earth;

Countless generations Cry in pain,

Breathlessly Awaiting a Royal Birth.

Light and Liberty, Outward Reaching,

Through all the years of Tribulation;

Prophets, Wisdom Gently Speaking,

Foretell Celestial Jubilation.

Crackling Icon, Poetry Challenge.

Picked on ribbon tone rivets
To march on the criss cross servant holiday
Crushed crystals disposed of in bubbling gas water
An altar sugar sweet crackling money pot
Full of deep desire and wished on treats
Craving shaken tear spreading raven coloured tunnel
Cheap trick for magician on the hock for a star turn angel

Poetry Challenge: Christmas

by jaybluepoems

Poetry Challenge: Christmas poem.

Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men

Crystal white in starlight’s gaze that peaks between the falling snow,
whispers sweet a Christmas song, upon a rhythm deep and slow…
It gathers in the spirit, resounds within the soul,
builds to bring a chorus strong of peace in phrases sweet and whole…
of peace on earth, good will toward men.
