Stages of Christmas

Many times Christmas
is but only a view
that some dream of
with a wintery hue.
Yet some perceive it
as Santa and sleigh
delivering presents
before Christmas day.
So many only think of
the presents to get
while there are ones
with Jesus inset.
Stages of Christmas
form in the mind
as scenes of things
within our own design.
Some might remember
a special someone
a time in December
a father or son.
They might even see
a moment's array
mother or daughter
on one Christmas day.
The season creates life
stages to be seen
beating as rhythms
of a wintery dream.
Open up your mind
to let your eyes see
stages of Christmas
maybe just a memory.
