My little Christmas tree “The night before the Christmas”

- The night before Christmas -

I would like to send y’all a short poem today for this special season.

It’s 4am now and I’m watching you sleep…

I’ve seen the sunset in the ocean in so many countries.

I’ve seen moutains kiss the sky in so many places.

I’ve seen desert’s sand glow from the sun.

I’ve seen the moon reflect it’s comforting watching over me from a mountain’s lake.

… but nothing in this world is as beautiful and as peaceful,

the sight of your face while you sleep…

The night before Christmas, you are the best gift from heaven.

Have a happy holiday season, and God bless you and your family…

The Gordon School – composition #03 – Winter in New England -

“Winter in New England”

Winter in New England is one of my favorite times during the year. I really like it when the seasons change.

The designs on my Tenugui show aspect of the season – snowflakes, muffins, ice skates and winter hats.
