The tree,

Alone,

Standing in the corner

The middle of May

Five months past

Christmas

Me

My sister

Begging for the tree to stay

A bit more

 

It looks so graceful.

It almost feels as if

The tree

My family

We’re all glowing

A deep soft warm

Yellow shimmer

In the spirit of Christmas,

Of all the holidays.

 

So now in the Kim family

It’s a tradition to

Keep the shimmering

Holiday

Spiritful tree

Until March

Or May

To keep the taste of

Christmas cookies

For the pine scent

To linger in the air

With us.
