In the spirit of Christmas, thought it would be nice to share those writings of ours that have relevance to the holidays. Past or present, all thoughts of Christmas/or whatever holiday you celebrate...

To begin I bring to you two from my "archive"
Blessings, and peace to all....
There is a story I have heard
about a night in World War I
when moved to brotherhood were they
and so put down their angry guns.
The soldiers on that Christmas Eve
gave not a thought to “side” or “place”.
For just the briefest brightest bit
they looked into each’s others face
and saw the man, the brother, son,
the soul inside their enemy.
They spoke and sang and shared that night
and spent their time in revelry.
When morning dawned, battle returned,
the angry arms picked up once more.
Searching eyes of brother-man
the killing came harder than before,
the killing came harder than before-
If only that time of Christmas peace
could somehow last more than a night.
Shoulder to shoulder as brothers instead,
no more to kill; no more to fight-
the star of Christmas, which is love,
would conquer all and end all war-
would conquer all and end all war!
Though bustle of the season does surround
and fills the day from sunrise to sunset,
still, you should stop and listen to the sound
-heaven telling what we should not forget.
The angels’ wish for man this season lies-
when thoughts become a much more gentle kind.
The earth all year is filled with anguished cries.
'Tis Christmas joins angelic and man's minds.
For Christmas-tides do waft upon the air
floating freely along on angels’ breath.
In quiet stillness one can hear their prayer-
the wish for man, of peace and happiness.
Celestial chorus! -Listen to the wind
exalting, “Peace on earth. Goodwill to men!”
