Evening Bright

By Trish Hubschman

Day 5 NPM

The night darkness comes later now.

Daytime is so much longer

Clocks read the same as before.

But it’s different.

The evening darkness goes to morning darkness.

We sleep later,

Are more rested,

And are stronger for the day.

Christmas Glee

(An Acrostic)

By Trish Hubschman

Christmas day started before daybreak.

Holiday excitement soared through my veins

Resting was not an option.

I had to know what I got for gifts.

Santa had come the previous night.

The rules were I had to wake the older kids first.

Mom and Dad came next.

All of us would go sit by the tree.

So may presents for a family of six.

Garland was strung around the tree so pretty.

Lamp light was on since it was still dark.

Except for our dog, Muffins,

Everyone was waiting.

    I just noticed that these 2 poems are in different seasons, different time frames, sporing and winter. That wasn’t intentional.

    1. Hi Trish, it’s a poetic synchronicity.
      Very enjoyable.
      Thanks for sharing.
