Holy Day

by Valerie Dearling

We all reflect at Christmas time

On those gone before or to warmer clime

Just a split second or all day long

Thoughts held within or released in song

Whether a liturgy or off the cuff

However released would be enough.

Positive thoughts are really a prayer

And sent from the soul can reach everywhere.

So send out love and kindness, I pray,

And make this a most Holy Day.

by Heather Atta

I walked towards silence

And found me the night

With its soft blinding shadows

A darkness

So bright

I felt its black


Its rich

Silky skin

Swept slowly

With eased bliss

And drank it


Such depth

And such wonder

By grace

Freely mine

An instance

To ponder

And praise

The divine
