It’s all in the music…

by Kevin T McEneaney

Like snowflakes dithering in windy breeze,

Christmas mythologies descend on us

as they accumulated over time,

during two thousand years of stories, songs.

Christmas fables are a bright treasure chest

of happiness, disguised wisdom, and joy,

yet the best of this bejeweled legacy

remains the music of this glad season.

Music long preceded our languages.

One might argue music created us

in the image of friendship, even love.

As a child, I still recall a snowflake

landing on my nose with excited joy.

Let’s live the music of that joy today!
