my favourite things/ Christmas Past/Christmas present/Christmas future

Christmas past
Christmas present
Christmas future

It looked like white Marzipan icing
tonight under the moonlight
and stars

I turned off the outside lights
I didn't need them
soft shadows melted into the moon's gaze
the touch soft upon the sleeping snowy earth
or at least here sleeping

in South Africa
Shoshanna set up the computer
and with Skype
and early morning
we saw all that Father Christmas
had brought the wee ones
so joyful this game we play each year
around our celebrating Jesus
His birth and coming to set us free

tonight the kiddies are free
not abandoned
not waning in weakness
and despair
laughter filling the air
all the way to Gramma's heart

Jedaiah doing a Mexican Christmas
Bethany doing a Prairie Christmas
Eduardo and I back to the Christmases past
just us and friends along the way

I look forward to Christmas future

I  see Grandkiddies on my knee
and hear their giggles
as we play young

any kind of Christmas
