Quarter ítil midnight
by my watch,
Christmas Eve on the Square
seven years ago.

Town nestled
but my eyes open,
No fear of forfeit now
my gift drifts soft and low.

Bottle midnight light
and press the blessing,
the first few minutes of Christmas
born in snow.

Just a still and silent clock and
I to count the moments,
give them voice and hear them speak
that we should know

    Thanks, CM! I'm very pleased you like it. I shot the photo and few others about seven years ago. That evening really was a little bit of magic for me.

    Snowfall. Near midnight. I was on the square by myself. And the clock, a long time broken, holding the moment. Everything was so still. I felt like I'd stepped into a snow globe, and outside time.

    Seasons can be a blessing--but a handful of moments can be, too.

    Thanks for reading and commenting. I appreciate it!
