Christmas Dreams

Christmas Dreams 2009

It started as a wonder wisp,
a dream of pure white snow.
How lovely would a Christmas be,
if magic were to flow.

It came aboard a gusty wind,
riding high and low.

It left a wake of sparkling joy,
as it was so long ago.

Innocently pure and sweet,
was the babe we came to know.

Stillness pierced on the land.
The sun rays beam aglow.

Dawn departs,
new crystal tears,
exuberantly they flow.

I dreamed of pure white houses.

Laden with sugar delight.

I dreamed of candy cane hearts
to beat at love’s first sight.

I dreamed of gifts you can not price,
no value to their worth.

I dreamed of sugar fairies.

Merry on the earth.

I dreamed of families gathered.

A Christmas carol bliss.
To capture every moment,
where nothing is amiss.

I dreamed of laughing faces,
cheeriness in leaps and bounds.

I dreamed of a wondrous Christmas.

A dream completely astound.

I wish for every dream be true.
Sincere and full of grace.
Let heavens kiss gently press,
a light upon your face.

Most of you know, I am not a poet. Sometimes what comes out is the language of the heart. My heart was so filled up this Christmas. It overflowed. It radiated. It beamed bright spotlights. It couldn’t have been more perfect. I didn’t ask for a memorable Christmas. But I got it.

I hope you did too.

  1. Holly-Thank you, I did write this. I would have been writing a book to describe everything that happened. I thought a poem could sum up how precious it was in shorter form. We had a WHITE Christmas here in Texas. UnHEARD of. In fact, I can’t remember ever having a white Christmas. It was only an inch but filled me with giddiness. Hope your Christmas was wonderful. 🙂


  2. Beautiful poem and lovely pics. Thanks for sharing your wonderful white Christmas.

    I just came from Zombie Mommy blog, also talking about her adventures with the Texas miricale of snow on Christmas. Unfortuely it didn’t make it down here. Just super cold!

    Brilliant, amazing, full of grace…I loved your poem and I get how poems flow through you to reach the paper (or keyboard!) I never “think” about my poems. They just happen.



  4. Wow. The pictures complimented the poem perfectly! Glad you had such a beautiful christmas!! We had a white one too, but that’s not that unusual in Illinois! Have a wonderful New Year!

    writers are all poets in their own way. and the weaving of the words and photos is wonderful 🙂
    hope this finds you well!


  6. Angelia, this is so inspiring As I read it, I was waiting for an author’s name or something to give me a hint. It’s pretty dog-gone amazing, it is. (That’s the way we talk in Georgia 🙂
    The picture of the girls laying on the floor at the Christmas tree is beautiful. I’d put it in a little frame to hang on the tree year after year.
    The idea of snow for Christmas never enters our minds over here. It was 63 degrees on Christmas day. Not very Christmas-like, but we made it a wonderful, beautiful occasion. Now we’re looking at New Year’s. I hope yours is a special one. You’ve got a big year coming up,huh?
