The Morning of Christmas Eve

Blue light of pre-dawn snowscape:
Cold, Quiet, Pristine.
Erie light of TV weather forecasts.
Travel today? Ummmm. God speed.
Black tea with honey and milk,
Oatmeal with cranberries and blueberries!
Phone rings, looking out, checking in.
Indoor forecast?
Baking, cutting board, grandma’s apron
Sleepy kitty ~ purring, twitching ~
bedroom pillows on the couch,
fuzzy blanket, Hallmark movies?
Early darkness will settle in.
Chamomile tea and holiday cookies.
Peace on Earth, Good Will Towards All ....
..... still my prayer.
