COMPLETE TEXT: "MISTLETOE REMEMBERED"  

Mistletoe Remembered
by Frank Elkins ©2013

Remembering Christmas... 

Everything glistening red, gold and green!
The magic of all hoped for,
alive in the moment of possibility.

This winter...
I see more of the blue in Christmas.
Each year a few less family and friends,
a melancholy – bittersweet holiday.

Still, I look forward to the Season...
Bewildered child-like faith of a long lost spirit. 
The miracle of cookie crumbs and disappearing milk –
presents you really wanted under the tree.

How I long to embrace that lofty reunion...
of love, hope, and flying reindeer!
Yet somehow it’s never quite the same,
once you’ve stopped believing in Santa Claus.

And fading memories cannot betray...
that Christmas when I first surrendered –
The experience of mistletoe ...
for that of mistletoe remembered.
