magic, wonderful
lights and fru-fru all over
let it last this year?

Today my car battery
accidentally drained
in a quiet parking lot
and I wondered what
in the world I would do
to get home.
From out of nowhere,
a man appeared with jumper
cables and spare time to help
in the frigid air.

Several attempts later, after driving his
car over a curb to reach mine, and
then pushing my car to a better, more
reachable place, success.
The stranger asked my name.
Merry Christmas, he said.
And he really meant it.

He not only restored my
battery, he restored my faith
and I thanked him and God
for yet another blessing
of the season.

I love this season,
even the squirrels get
an elaborate feeding station!

the assignment
was to re-create the work
of a master

undaunted, my 19-year-old
put color to a plain white canvas
and took my breath away

such confidence in color,
in brush strokes

"just" an art major?
hardly, I believe
she is majoring in magic

origami cranes
symbols of healing and hope
in challenging times

they hang suspended
at the cancer center: how
we want to believe

I cut things up just
to put them back together;
and this pleases me!

from one holiday
to the next; where's the remote
so I can press "pause"?
