Bonus Selection: A Poem for Christmas

Christmas 2012
What is it about a child
that makes us smile?

And hope?

A baby gurgles,
eyes flitting wildly about,
arms and legs flailing the air,

and grown men take leave of their senses
while women folk gurgle back.

Newly minted people,
freshly formed and sent forth into this world,

remind all of us of who we once were;
and who we may, perhaps, still become.
