Christmas on the West Coast

Reindeer Christmas decorations

Christmas on the West Coast

Twigs stunning in diamonds
doors lined running pearls
scribble reindeer all lit up
under Christmas tree swirls.

Christmas light decorations

Balconies wearing ruby
emerald, agate bling
like necklaces, bracelets
scarves, pins and a ring.

Stained glass window

Roof lines cascade ice lights
twinkle bells and bright stars.
Windows beam the old story.
Velvet antlers deck cars.

Manger scene in lights

On the city hall rooftop
in stitches of white
Wise Men come ever nearer
star-led through the night.

Night scene with lit-up tree

In the rain plaza glistens
all that’s missing is snow
to soften the sparkle
of a silent night glow.

I love Christmas lights! How can you tell?

Poetry Friday LogoWe do sometimes have snow. We actually had a dusting earlier in the week that lasted for a few days but this afternoon the rains came back. So we’ll take what we get and look on the bright side. For the wet just adds to the sparkle, making it all the prettier.

This post is part of Poetry Friday, hosted today by the eclectic and always interesting Tabatha Yeatts at The Opposite of Indifference.
