Green and bare

Standing in a corner

Our tree awaits

The magic


A string of lights

Sparkling, glowing,

As if we have caught the stars

And placed them,

Carefully,

In the branches


Christmas music

And the smell of cinnamon

Fill the house

Fill my heart

As, one by one,

Ornaments fill

The empty spaces


A deep breath

I step back

One arm around

My sister’s shoulders

My parents smile

Our tree is,

Once again,

Beautiful


We did this.

Together.

We filled this room

With glowing warmth

And simple magic

One of my favorite family traditions is decorating our Christmas tree. I love seeing our old ornaments, and I love how everything smells like cinnamon.
