Twas the night…

The sun sets on another day…

Stunning. It is all that can be said. Simply stunning.

Twas the night before Christmas

and I took a look

I wanted adventure

I wanted a book

I knew Santa’s coming was soon and was now

but I wanted to read more, and read it aloud

So I picked up a book and I quickly kept reading

and speaking each word as my mind it was feeding

I read for a time and it turned into hours

I felt lots of things but mostly empowered

I heard silent footsteps they came from the den

so I quickly went forward and then walked right in

There stood a vision dressed all in red

He smiled at my bookshelves and nodded his head

I smiled at my luck to see such a man

and quickly with purpose I reached out my hand

but in the instant it took he was straight up the chimney

and I was unsure of my eyes for what I did see

but as I looked to the tree that sat in the corner 

I saw dozens of books stacked all in order

I smiled at the gift that meant so much to me

that I knew that adventure was what I would see

and as I bent forward I heard all the words

On Dasher and Dancer and so many more

I was happy I saw him and hope I saw more

No net nor no TV was needed for my night

For Santa had made everything right

I sat down to read and smiled once again

because Christmas is imagination and mine will not end.

So as the sun sets on another day, I hope all of you have a super Christmas eve and an even better Christmas morning.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it each and every day…
