Christmas Comes ~~ a Whirligig poem

. .  MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL


Christmas;
time to celebrate Jesus' birthday 

brown is a five letter word 

Some of my very best friends

white, red, black, brown, or yellow 


Read their palms, Jesus loves all 

born to die to save the world 

Today Christians burnt for Him 


consonants and vowels we 

Like windows, visible and 

unmarked and vulnerable 


sins forgiven by our God 

paint these words, out of the pant-

ry, "Jesus died for my sin!"

On December, 22, 2015, I linked this poem with post, The Tuesday Encounter, at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads (open forum day)
 . and
I am linked with Whirligig, the at Sunday's Whirligig: A Dozen Words for Writers (# 38) 


THIS WEEK'S WORDS come from "Ghazal for White Hen Pantry" by Jamila Woods: brown, friends, white, palm, born, burnt, consonants, windows, unmarked, sins, paint, pantry.  They are underlined in my 'poem' and you can see I used all twelve words.

Words are wonderful. We can play with them, they can be music to our ears and use them to express our feelings and by our silence speak louder than words. Great post Jim.

Love the idea of being "consonants and vowels... unmarked and vulnerable". The image paints so many possibilities...

Happy Holidays, Jim!

Red, yellow, black or white, we are precious in His sight. Merry Christmas to your family, Jim.

Thanks, Angie. That song popped into my mind when I wrote this, first off. But I had to use 'brown' because it was a Whirligig word. Merry Christmas, I'll visit your writing in a couple of minutes.

sins forgiven,
not to be drown by your intentional sins at the mean time.
