What’s Wrong With “Holiday?”


Gathering pine cones

for the fireplace, blankets,

clean towels, spring water, Christmas candles,

we collect what we need for a gathering

during this holiday season.



Look for the handcrafted

reindeer that makes me smile;

but, I will also celebrate

with a Buddhist prayer, a Sanskrit chant,

and the rose fragrance of community heart.
