Christmas Tree (3, 3, 2 pattern)

Light glimmers;
silver tinsel shimmers
serenading ornamental shades

of a satin emerald and ruby parade
mingling with silhouettes of aged crystal cascade
Snowmen, Pixies and Angels to see

Atop the wise men three…
Christmas Tree

This one is dedicated to my angel upon this Earth.



Silent screams
pain haunts our angry dreams
demons of flesh among the living

Tormenting the souls that humans were given
Destroying the mind with bad crimes unforgiven

Wandering this much tormented Earth
Testing our souls hidden worth
New-found mirth?
