Christmas Traditions - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

December invites the festive holiday season
bringing with it an anticipation that glows
The excitement seems to grow spontaneously
dominating my emotions even as I doze

As the hours progress… days shorten
Thoughts focus on decorating with lights
In a prominent place the tree is decorated
Each adornment stirs memories that unite

Simultaneously the past and present
combine consecutively… igniting a smile
as well as tears of sadness that transfix...
A stare renders me motionless for awhile

Years suddenly eclipse with a wakeful blink
Plans of preparation are jotted on a list
Gifts and food must be carefully considered
Tradition and the magic of the holiday coexist
