Hope for the family dysfunction at Christmas. Plea for reparation before the New Year.

Christmas Wish for Families


Families: extended and blended.

Trying to make Merry in a day;

Christ, what a task set before you!

You thought that the Pharisees were tough.

Little did you know…


Ancient festering insults

Stewing with the roasted potatoes

Simmering resentments

Ladled over past neglects and over-sites

A week to resolve the conflicts

Before the New Year’s Resolutions:


Pains stashed away for the next gathering

What if the funeral comes before the forgiveness?

Another inherited serving of ancestral debris:

Heaped upon the next generation.


Wake-up! Smell the mistletoe!

Embrace and kiss:

Not the Italian kiss of death;

Nor the Judas touch

But, the kiss Mary plants

On the face of

New Born Hope.
