Strands of lights like stars

December 27, 2011

The Christmas fun continues, with a poem along with cool abstract photos of Christmas tree lights taken by my daughter:



Strands of lights like stars
on the Christmas tree,
blues reds yellows melding together
against the branches.
We debated the environmental impact
of an actual tree versus plastic versus
a potted one like our other indoor greenery.
In the end,
we decided to support tree farmers who use
(hopefully not abuse)
the soil for their livelihood.
Not to mention the beautiful smell of
the tree filling the room,
better than any fake air freshener.
And so,
we ease our heads underneath the tree
and look up,
getting the maximum effect of
light strands like stars,
reminding me of looking up
underneath trees outside
and seeing sunlight pop in the spaces
between leaves.
