Holiday Mashup Blogmas Contest Christmas Poetry

2

Poetry about Christmas, Faith, and Love for the Blogmas Contest.

Dark chocolate simmering on the stoves.
White snowflakes painting the trees.
Colored lights wrapping around the windows.
A child savoir born to make man and woman free.

And you hear the old hymns coming from a manger;
the long desire of a traveling stranger:

“Your Spirit, One touch.
Panacea.
Your voice, I heard.
Panacea.
My faith, You Lit.
Panacea.
My Heart, Your Love.
Panacea.”

And as the night slowly drifts away.
You’re awakened by the cares of the day:

I’m so broke, it’s not even funny.
I can’t afford the weather when it’s sunny.
My pockets have holes – they’re leaking all of my money
and I still have to buy a gift for my hunny!

But still, it’s Christmas and I remember:

The money comes and goes.
Presents, I’ll forget.
But we’ll build bridges to our hearts, love,
and that’s as good as it gets.

Merry Christmas Everyone! I’ll end with a quote from one of the most memorable Christmas movies!

“No man is a failure who has friends.”
[Mark Twain, and also] Clarence, “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

This poem is actually a combination of three of my favorite poems that I’ve written over the past couple months.

It was submitted to KaylaAnn’s Blogmas Contest. Be sure to check it out and maybe even join!

Bridges at Christmas

Poetry about Christmas and Love

Christmas trees in windows.
Hot cocoa on the stoves.
Little snowflakes painting the trees.
It’s Christmas.

I’m wrapping up your present.
It’s going underneath the tree.
I spent so much time thinking of it.
I spent every penny.

Walking through a winter wonderland.
It’s cold, so I grabbed your hand.
Passed by Jesus in a manger.
My spirit feels free.
Ya, it’s Christmas.

The money comes and goes.
Presents, I’ll forget.
But we’ll build bridges to our hearts, love,
and that’s as good as it gets.

Holiday Birds

Work load,
coming in,
finish,
before the year ends.
The snow is falling down,
and I’ve still got to buy a turkey.

Time is,
slipping,
Christmas cards and shopping,
I’ve yet make a list.

But WordPress asked me
to write something better
than just complain about
the weather.

If you wanna know what I really think,
I’ll put it in a song.
Before I lose sight of
what this season’s been about
all along.

People,
family,
they drive a little crazy,
But so do I.

If you wanna know what I really think,
I’ll put it in a song.
Before I lose sight of
what this season’s been about
all along.

It’s not the end-of-year rush, or crowds and unrest.
Not the shopping trips that put your patience to the test.
It’s just a Christmas Holiday away from the rest.
To get close to the best, just like birds in a nest.

Who you have is the best, they’re the birds in your Nest.
