LIGHTING THE CHRISTMAS TREE - a poem

LIGHTING THE CHRISTMAS TREE
Nut-brown fingers are eager to switch on tree lights as a myriad of faces uplift to halos of brightness spinning ritualistically while a family gathers inside the ancestral home. Resounding Grandfather clock ticks away time and memories. Branches gleam anew with old crystals, baubles, and golden beads.  Silver whimsies sparkle like showery Fourth of July glitter on this Merry Christmas Eve.
