Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve

A luscious slippery chill
Returns to the woods.

An elegant winter white branch
Has fallen across the leafy path.

I pull it away so that others
Can pass unobstructed.

Silence, but for the occasional small bird
Peeping in the brush.

For a moment –
One precious moment –
Peace on Earth.
