the gift of light

let not your light be still
wake the neighbors,
place a song of Hope
on their tongues
and an everlasting crown
of Joy upon their heads
let your heart become
a mirror, reflecting Love
outward; a beacon 
without limit
lastly, see to it that
the pantry baskets 
spill over, always,
with the fruit of truth,
the gift of Peace.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
