December 24

The shops are filled with

Customers

The air saturated with smells

Of food

Spices

And cinnamon cookies

Shopping for the lunch

Close-up

Preparations country-wide

European-wide

Worldwide for many

At least where Western

Values and tradition will

Still be celebrated.

Dogs and kids

The elderly persons

Families.

The poet’s spouse in a

Pensive mood

The poet- always felt

Lonesome

But never lonely

It’s part of writer’s make-up

Even sitting in midst of

Chatter at Castelletto’s Café

Sounds of numerous languages

Peace and joy to all.

December 24.
