my name is Christmas

my name is Christmas,
and I don't care what people think
I know I am about love

my name is Christmas, and
I am alive and will always be
alive in this world

my name is Christmas,
and I am family;
new babies, and grandparents
and parents and brothers and sisters

my name is Christmas,
and I am not things,
but I am Dr. Seussian
thoughts, dreams, and hopes

my name is Christmas,
and I am icicle lights,
and color, and joy to the
world
and
peace on earth

my name is Christmas,
and I am forgiveness
and inclusion, not exclusion
my name is Christmas,
and I am Jesus

Hello, Holly!! I keep checking your site to see what's up, so today I thought...shoot...why the heck ain't I reading the older posts? This is so cool! I wish I had seen this in '06. I could have shared it with my youth group, as we were doing a similar type of poem. Yours kicks our butts, though...ha! I love the "exercise" you came up with and the lung poem.

Anyway, don't worry about commenting or anything like that. It's just me saying hello and seeing what you have in the archives. Take care.
