! ! ~~ Merry Xmas ~~! ! - Poem by Nikunj Sharma

The wind carries soft whispers
that winter has preserves for me.
The morning sun opens its eyes,
Rays struggle to see through the fog.

The snow continues to prepare
for the sledge, that shall prick
the heart to deliver the bounty
for the eyes that wait here.

Small eyes begin to shine again;
It's time to hold your dreams
and harbor hopes. The divine courier
is never too busy.

Before opening the wrap, I Shall
ask my questions, if I'm permitted
time. I've Heard the queue is
getting longer by the day.

A lighted tree echoes with smiles
as expectation takes birth. The mind
searches through the stacked
wants and desires.

A beam opens thought into points
where no sunlight reaches.
A thousand splendid suns illuminate
spirit's dark alleys.

    Awell crafted poem, you set up the setting for a Xmas eve, all with well lit tree, and hopes soaring, pondering over Santa's plight.
    the last stanza
    a beam opens thoughts into points
    where no sunlight reaches.
    A thousand splendid suns illuminate
    spirit's dark alleys
    this stanza is open to multiple interpretations, hall mark of a great poet.

    Merry xmas and a happy new year.

    As invited, so I am here… It is a nice poem, for me, yes it is… though we are people of different minds and opinions… let’s just continue doing what we love to do. Playing with the words especially if it is for good is such a wonderful event. I am just new in this site but I start loving it.

    I’ll be reading and writing you guys around.
