Greetings 2021

We have a Christmas tree this year

With needles scattered at its base

My quest for festive atmosphere—a tiny taste of peace and grace

It’s lit and wrapped and fully dressed—and festive with its bows and such

to ease and sooth my restive soul

much struck with missing all of you.

There’s something so off-kilter about:

1) Snow on palm trees, and

2) Christmas dinner for one OR two

May 2022 put things right
