Poem: A Gift














Overstimulated by a cacophony of colored
lights and overlapping Christmas songs,
I look away for a moment,
    toward darkness,
       and there you are, golden in the starlight.

A hand points,
     heads turn,
        breaths are taken and held,
we sit in silence, enraptured by beauty.
