Advent 2019: 2 Faith


We light this candle for faith,
He hold a light to it in times of need,
And shine a light on it in times of hardship,
We ask for guidance from it in times of confusion.
***
Faith does not just mean religion,
You can have faith in many other things,
Such as the deep faith in love for ones family,
And the unmovable unbreakable faith in humanity.
***
Share your faith no mater its bases,
Show others where you get your strength,
Help others struggling to start finding theirs,
Let others known and learn from your strengths.

2019 Christmas Countdown 8: Christmas Shopping


Nothing beats the thrill,
Of walking under the warm draft,
Entering a highstreet shop,
From the cold step.
***
Finding things for others,
Toys, food and drink,
Knowing they will get opened,
After Christmas eve.
***
Picking stocking fillers,
And kids new toys,
Stuff to play with,
For girls and boys.
***
But after the buying,
Comes the wrapping,
The next job needing done,
on the big Christmas list.

2019 Christmas Countdown 7: Christmas Card From Afar


In this time of electronic communication,
There is still one postage that gets us sending,
Cards are a perfect way to say,
Merry Christmas to you on this day.
***
Cards are sent from all corners of the world,
Where Christmas is a barbecue down by the reef,
Followed by something cooling and sweet,
Or it could mean snowmen in the garden.
***
Within that pile of letters and circulars,
It is nice to see a card shaped bill,
One that on opening will bring you a thrill,
A Merry Christmas from someone who remembers you still.

For they are coming.

2019 Christmas Countdown 4: Christmas Shop Fronts


Shops get all dressed up,
At this time of year,
To share and be known,
The Christmas Cheer.
***
Windows with lights round,
And deer on the ground,
Santa sat in the back,
Next to a present
***
Frosty sells another toy,
For a stocking of a girl or boy,
The shops flow with Christmas joy,
At this time of year.

2019 Christmas Countdown 3: They’ve Defrosted BublĂ©


It’s a sure sign Christmas has come,
As the great singer wakes,
From his slumber down under,
And shares a song with everyone.
***
A new album and some cheer,
Maybe a sweet jungle bells,
Or something more swing,
We all recognise his deep voice.
***
So lets acknowledged,
They’ve defrosted BublĂ©,
And that it must be,
Close to Christmas.
