Christmas Poem: A Collection of Christmas Centerpieces

Fresh Christmas Centerpiece with succulents, orchids and carnations.

Christmas Centerpiece with a hanging votive.

The beauty of the season

sits quietly on the sleeves of leaves

the petals of freshness

the grace of softness distills

the harried air

the hustle and bustle, the flurry of

feet, all too busy

gifts to get,

the mall to conquer,

the UPS, FED guy to catch

and home again,

to bake some more...

the vortex of rush

twirl to get you in the swirl.

Quietly the aroma seeps

filling the spaces of hearts

to pause

perhaps to gather

thoughts worthy of the season

Love, Joy, Peace...

stares

if only we care.



I made all the Christmas arrangements. Feel free to steal a moment to enjoy and perhaps, capture the beauty of the season.

Jill, I was just going to send you a Christmas e-card. Thanks for dropping by to comment. I mentioned you (again) in my last hub before this--the one on making a centerpiece for under $10. Merry Christmas.

Om, you're just too sweet. A floral shop requires lots of effort and I love to enjoy life too much for that (in other words, I'm lazy).

Movie Master,thanks for your encouraging comment. Hope your Christmas was merry and have a blessed new year.
