Christmas Morning

This petite satin clown sits on a bough in our Christmas tree.

A golden ruffle frames his shaggy topped head.

Wide cobalt blue eyes leap ahead of his heart shaped lips-- sealed with a short grin.

I don’t remember when he came aboard to hang with the disheveled elves

in their blue flannel PJ’s.

Time was when tiny hands placed him on a branch across the tree

from where the green beaded princess holds court.

Nimble hands of an older boy stashed him just below the glittery kindergarten star--

near a tuna can ornament adorned with the baby in a walnut shell.

Year after year, the mime reappears delightful and unchanging.

He holds my affection in his praying hands.

“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”

(God with us”).

Matthew 1:23

Merry Christmas from coco and MP too!
