This is my final piece for the My December contest! I know it's TECHNICALLY supposed to be an essay, but since they gave an expert review, I'm assuming this is allowed XD. Enjoy! :D

Instead, We Wait

December 11, 2018

For most, December means Christmas,
toys and games
family meals
and tales of the past.
But not
for us.
We aren't holiday people.

Instead, we wait
for snow
Glorious, shining snow
that covers our shoes
soaks our ankles
and silvers our hair.

Instead, we wait
for hymns
Loud, rolling church hymns
that tell of the Holy Child
bring joy to our hearts
and smiles to our faces.

Instead, we wait
for love
Beautiful love
that arrives at Winter's start
makes eyes shine
and shows the heart's true spirit.

Instead, we wait
for December
a chilly month,
yet the happiest month.

Tales of goodwill fly,
songs of joy are sung,
and bells are rung
In December.
