ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS

The Night Before
A Renhai by Vaughn Seward (vs) & Janice Thomson (jt)


Winter bedtime —
the last child tucked in
for the night. /vs

Rising smoke from chimneys — /vs
distant mountain veiled in fog. /jt

Blazing fire —
children's gifts wrapped between
sips of cocoa /jt

-Vaughn Seward; CA

A babe in a stall
The odor of hay and straw
Redemption is born

-Quentin Clingerman; US


ponsettias abloom-
the choir sings clad in white
and red

-Gillena Cox; TT

That is quite surprising... I have never heard of that before reading your post!
It makes me quite puzzled and angry too!
