Farewell to Christmas

all but one of his fires out

like a patch of red flannel
against a cotton blanket of white
resting
both cold and warm

one can speculate how
or when, or where
or even why
but in the certainty of the moment
all the questions quickly lose resonance

and as a friend says,
“it is what it is”
so sing another round
for the feast of Stephen
and call it a day.

(p. adams)

The Red Hot Chili Peppers – Snow (Hey Oh) Album Version

Be well, and at peace,

Phil

    I like this so much, the casual way the big idea is related to the reader. I also love the picture and how it goes with the title!
