Christmas Quiet

a quiet christmas
we expect this year..
travelers not arriving
just the holiday..
season shouts elsewhere..
a red poinsettia 
will be sufficient tree..

a seeming culmination
of early bells
an annual football
a brown dog
cats and icicles.. 
city lights and coastline
from a mountaintop.. 
excitement on those mornings
ribbons fleeting use..

these few memories
fill our quiet now..
but in reflection 
this quiet has not
only now occurred..
with gratitude we see
our treasured
 christmas quiet has 
through many years
