      ...and seasonal Greetings to you.

      This one is very short but nonetheless still sublime. Have a great holiday and an even more promising 2016. Peace.

      Your poem spoke to me, stillness lets our inner light speak to us and fill our thoughts of past memories which I cherish. Wonderful Christmas Eve Gift. Thank you..
