Papa, Josh and Patrick welcoming the new season
at Christmas tree lighting - and fireworks.
Patrick watched and watched
and then the big bangs - those that just make noise
He put up his hand in the stop position
but kept watching even though
the sound was disconcerting.
Let this wonderful season begin
and be in the hearts of
each and every one of us.
Feel so lucky to have this new heart,
to share Christmas with.
