The Christmas Gift

Poem By Jo Lynn EhnesAllen

A gift beneath the Christmas tree
is not my wish this year.
I'd rather that he comfort me
and hold me ever near.

To have his giving heart embrace
the yearning in my soul,
and see a glow adorn his face
with joy he can't control.

To spark a glint in ginger eyes
from dreams we jointly share,
and hear his gasp of true surprise
when peace pervades the air.

To see his smile, that shines so bright,
when walking through the door,
and share his passion's flame at night
as Heaven we explore.

So on this Christmas Eve I'll stare
at twinkling stars above,
then cast my wish and say a prayer
he'll send my gift; his love.

Love Is (Found) Is Love

Love
is found;
enraptured
are two, then shared

In Solitude

Alone, awaiting warmth to show,
I'm stroked by autumn's final breeze.
These vibrant branches once aglow
are now suppressed by time's disease.

Keeper Of The Key

Revealed unto my waiting soul;
the secret keeper of the key.
A tender touch unveils his role
as rings of love encompass me.

A Seasonal Affair

A frigid spell of arctic air
adorns this tranquil western scene;
a stunning glimpse of Fall's affair
with Spring's vivacious flower queen.

A Change Of Seasons

Autumnal winds caress my face
as summer's heated breeze expires.
The years have quickened in their pace,
foregoing my misplaced desires.

Don't Rewind

back in the deepest
recesses
(where no one wants to go)
inside a mind
