It is time for our annual Christmas poem. You’d think after so many years of Christmas poems, they would get repetitive but no. There seems to be endless themes and wonders to grow a poem at this heart-filled time of year. Hug someone(s) today with a wrapping your arms and hands around them, holding each other heart to heart.
Hands at Christmas
Tis the season
giving with outstretched hands,
a welcoming handshake,
a hug and handful pat.
Tis the season to give secondhand
those treasured, preloved things
handpicked and placed under the tree.
Our hands are the tools of our heart
for cookies baked in the kitchen
in the company of friends,
for gifts created out of love and imagination
every stitch, every detail
touched by warm hands.
Our hands do the work
of charity, helping, and love
happy, useful hands at Christmas.
