Holidays                         by Sami Khalil

Be of good cheers…

 

To tug at the spirit, my soul doth yearn

To vanish dark despair and live in peace

Seekers of light that shines where longings churn

Where voices intone songs of love’s release.

 

Holidays are rimmed with vivid embers

Leisurely sparking flames till dawn’s first gleam

Shall not tomorrow’s hope break chain’s vendors

Where mercy’s given to venturing dream.

 

How gracious thou art God in jeweled crown

Thereon we bow and bend the knees in praise

Over hills and hollows, the wondrous town

Cheers rise where eyes behold beauty’s said ways.

 

To tug at the spirit, my soul doth yearn

A bright future awaits those who discern.

I hope a bright future does await us all, Sami. Lately, though, I wonder if we ever will be out of this pandemic! I wish you a very happy holiday season and a new year filled with plenty of reasons to smile. Lydi**

To tug at the spirit, my soul doth yearn
A bright future awaits those who discern.

Dear Sami, another sonnet from your talented pen. How well you compose these. There has been much darkness recently and I sincerely hope that the holiday season will bring forth some shining light. I wish for peace and happiness to all, wherever they live, whatever their beliefs. I hope the new year will bring more understanding and more tolerance. I wish you too dear Sami all of that and more. Happy Holidays dear poet.
