My Christmas New Year Holiday

25
Cold, bright Christmas day
dressed in gratitude for my
family and faith.

******
26
Cold, clear winter day
and I’m quiet entreating
my voice to return.

******
27
Saints versus Falcons
Monday night game threatened my
throat’s recovery.

******
28
Sinuses clearing
throat pain abating nicely;
my strength’s returning.

******
29
Mostly back to me
voice hollow cavernous like
the winter night’s wind.

******
30
I woke this morning
fearful my throat un-mended
imagined big setbacks.

******
31
I’m ready to shed
leaves of this long year; ready
for new year’s flowering.
