Spirit be joyful

“The rejoicing of Christmas
Is majestic and spiritual,
No boundaries, no barriers,
Just caring and ritual,
And that feeling of oneness,
Which evolves from it all,
Is that of its essence up above,
O’ so tall:
Celebrate unto others,
Thy friend, family and stranger,
In brother’ hood and fellow love,
As though then by that Manger.” JM

Advent Ending

"The Advent season is now ending. A season filled with the anticipation of Christmas blessings. The songs of Maria experience added rhapsody, like intricate bridges joining in spiritual bonding." JM

Wondrous Christmas Grace

“Softly floating o’er the Lands like a greeting from the stars,
One feels the bond of joyous love, gently throughout the world.

Every heart with strong desire is happy to be an offering,
As the fest of love and Christmas nears, o so very, very softly.

And the heaven’s glow is bursting forth with a thousand flickering stars,
As the Christmas fest of enchanted love soars from all distant shores.

And chiming from the heavens is a Christmas song of the Holy Night,
While brightly shining out of every window are wonders of a Christmas light,

And a shimmering glow is painted on every person’s face,
Showing all the joyous pleasures of this wondrous Christmas Grace.” JM

"In the blankets of snow,
The world takes on a glow
Of a time of the seasons
With ev’ry good reason
To take out your skis
Swoop down mountains with ease,
Or find a froz’ lake
And skate ‘til you break,
From exhaustion, or freeze,
Or, God..., start to sneeze.
But, after your play,
There is more t' the day,
‘Cause then everyone gathers
For a little thereof after.
So you take off your boots,
Settle down with the group,
Build a fire with some logs,
And drink plenty of grog.” JM

Diva Debonair

"Utmost territorially and quite gloriously,
Divas command their territory quite notoriously.
With colorful leadership and confident flare,
Divas offer an exemplary debonair,
And, though not intending to annoy,
Divas emit confidence as a ploy,
Inspiring another to his personal worth,
Not to emulate some other's impersonal girth." JM
