Christmas Out There
larrylark

Sometimes things aren’t what they seem.
 1
Grass not quite green.
 2
Moon beams casting sinister light
 3
as bare branches of winter trees
 4
glisten in unrealistic ways.
 5
Keep listening and soon you will hear a discordant clang of bells
 6
telling you that Christmas night has arrived.
 7
In the distance a solitary voice sings
 8
one line of “Silent Night.”
 9
For her it’s just another one to survive.
 10
While a man tried ringing someone, anyone…
 11
no reply.
