some of my holiday treasures are
humble kitchen linens.
some are simple candle holders,
waiting in the late afternoon light.
and some are precious pages in a book my mumsie
made for our young children in 1989.
each of our stockings, drawn in exact detail
(before gretta was born!)
including our kitties,
davey and chet.
lindsey, sleeping on her back, as usual,
with eyeglasses on the night stand.
stewart and hannah each have their own page.
when gretta arrived a few years later, my mumsie added
a page at the end that included her as well.
do you unpack treasures during the holiday season?
a cherished menorah?
a nativity scene?
a papier mache sunburst for the solstice?
or do you create new treasures each year?
