autumn before a Christmas eve

a low monochrome of light lay on
dusk blown fasciculating leaves
descant and rustling in homage
to each russet leaf
each snowflake’s hope
  for a christmas card
    in the lantern light
      of a mince pie carol boy
 on the night of
                       Christmas eve

a low mosaic of might be lay on
santa dreams in fantasy and please
descant and trembling in homage
to each trusted belief
each delicate hope
  for a divine shard
      in the moonlit night
        often evinced in feral joy
 on the morning of
                            Christmas day
