Beginning with this post, I will be featuring poetry I have used
over the years in hand crafted Christmas cards. Many of my
readers might recognize a line or two from years past. I wish to
add my voice to the season to bring forth memories to be
refreshed for new readers and also those familiar with my work.
She tenders fingertips to a face
as lightly as a kiss of wind
and nudges memories, clad in illusion,
Star shaped, diamond chips,
melting snow on little faces,
Nature has painted red roses
on milk cheeks
and has buried memories
to be awakened at another time.
Everlasting memories. . . but. . .
we carry the one face
of the one child
