That Secret Christmas… (reconstructed)

that secret Christmas…

when we drove

to Capitola

and the city

welcomed us with lights.

and they mirrored on the water

and celebrated

with us.

as we fasted that day

Ramadan in December,

Christmas in Capitola;

and ate calamari at Grendel’s

at sunset

while I smiled at the man

with his wife

who

could not speak.

I am awed

by such moments

of

comfort

and

joy

and I revel

in such

love-filled

gifts

in life.

that secret Christmas…
