Christmas has always captivated my imagination; as far back as I can remember. My mind and heart are wrapped up in the feeling of love, warmth, and goodwill toward men. It lifts my soul.
Oh, Christmas! I 💖 you!
Holidays embody a time when people make a collective effort to be together. It’s really the tradition of it all, gently tugging at our hearts. A myriad of memories accumulated throughout our lives, just waiting to happen again.
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful - Norman Vincent Peale
All that glitters is not gold. Sometimes it's just holiday bling.
All, that is gold, does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong, does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost - J. R. R. Tolkien
Here in the glow of these lingering moments before Christmas, I take pleasure in its warmth, savoring the feeling. Amid the glitter, beside the silence of the night, all is calm, all is right- and just like that, it lights up the room in my heart.
Oh, Christmas Tree! Sitting on the couch with a glass of wine, thoughts of Christmas drifting in and out. It is that time of year when I want to press the pause button. Stop. Reflect. Maybe even rewind back to the good parts — at home, sweet home.
Christmas has a way of bringing out the musings in me. So many beautiful memories. Still making new ones and recycling the rest. A lifetime of love and joy in my world. And as is always, there must be a flower. I dedicate these flowers to the #WednesdayYellow @ColorChallenge by @Kalemandra, who colors my world every day.
And just like that, these musings are done, but as far as Christmas? I can guarantee that there is still a little left in my heart. Have a most fabulous day! See you tomorrow!

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?
i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.
later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
