echoes

after the noise
shouted greetings
the lean-in
chin-down
say-mistletoe
posturing
posing
prepping
performing
fades to scrapbook
story telling
thing of the past

and the red foil
ripped away
crumpled
rolls unnoticed
under that favorite chair
a holiday tumbleweed

tiny needles
dried crisp
beyond rehydration
fall from piney branch
at gentlest brush
releasing glassy globes
from wiry hooks
into tupperware mausoleums
cheery coniferous symbol
resenting living room crucifixion
only to
await incineration

overhead
delicate silvery crescent
waxes
so beautifully
imperceptible
still cued by
God above
far lovelier
than tenderly packaged
carelessly unpackaged
trinkets
trappings

eternal vs. returned for a bigger size

cold
warm
snow
mud
nature flatly refuses
alteration
for our pronouncements
ignoring
even flouting
(proverbial tongue out)
gregorian assignment

in brief moments
of insight
we might remember
and let it be
