We present to you 34 poets representing 12 different countries… from Australia, Egypt, Guatemala, India, Ireland, The Netherlands, Nigeria, Philippines, Scotland, South Africa, UK, and the USA. This is our fifth annual Global Christmas Collaboration… Emma’s voice begins the chorus and Craig’s voice closes out the song… All other wondrous poets are in alphabetical order… “What I wish and hope for our world…”

 

 

 

When I was young the world seemed endless. I was overawed by everything it represented: an enormity of space, a cornucopia of life, but the tragedy of war, of need, of tears. Now older, I know there's far more to consider. With all my heart I pray the survival of this planet and its multitudes through wisdom, tolerance, empathy, unselfishness and most of all - LOVE.

Emma Joy - UK

 

No snow in a land kissed by the sand and sun
Brightens an expectant future lifted on a festive cheer
N laze away our summer dayz
Kick it back, thank fat Santa n crack another beer
Adrian AIDZ Giannini ~ Australia

 

A card expressing Christmas love,

an ornament of evergreen decoration,

a blanket of white covering

covering the ground

when there is no snow white

like angel wings of love, touching

touching the hem of baby Jesus

Jesus's birth under a bright glowing star...

Arthur Henn ~ USA

 

I wish for all to feel LOVE

Touching our hearts at least once

Leaving its mark for evermore

Radiating peace hope and smiles

Barbara B (Seashell) ~ Scotland

 

May this yuletide season draw together hope for a more perfect tomorrow,

to which hunger no longer prevails and the world over unites. Behold the eyes of a child, such preexist.

Becky Corinne Strukamp (InYrDreams) ~ USA

 

I wish each have dreams to reach for,
the heart and strength to have beliefs,
the wisdom to listen before speaking,
and the love to accept others.
Chris ~ USA

 

Dream of a world that never cries,
Each gift of dawn opens our eyes,
a wish filled with presence of love,
bowed in the magic of Christmas.
Corset ~ USA

 

Still the mind and calm the hearts of humankind

just one second is all I ask - pause....and breathe.

See the world and its children in its tortured frame,

See that it's our only home - and time to change the game.

C.R. ~ Ireland

 

In the arms of capricious cold

There is warm hope

There are bright spots visible

And sparkle

In pure inner strength in everyone

Where faith and peace rest

And love grows… Merry Christmas

Elisa Laura (E.L.) ~ The Netherlands

 

Starry lanterns fills the evening sky
The smell of ham and singing voices ring
Old quarrels and fights now lost and buried
Begins this peaceful night of Christmas cheer
Fierysuzaku ~ Philippines

 

A planet cradled in loves esteem

Spirits aglow with hope and dreams

Peaceful hearts both old and small

Each wish fulfilled for one, and all!

Hey Jude ~ USA

 

i wish . . .
not one child is forgotten this Christmas;
That the lonely find comfort in a friend;
That for just one day, resentments and harsh words are left outside in the cold with only warmth and laughter hitching a ride in the front door;
i wish
for twinkling lights and glowing candles, group hugs and families reunited;
i hope . . .
we remember the reason for the season and where all that is good and wholesome comes from.
But most of all, i wish every single person a reason to h.o.p.e.

j ~ USA

 

Wish for the ability to make wishes.
Wish for times not afraid
Wish for dreams that are not fleeting
Wish in light not in shade.

Ken Simm ~ UK

 

My hope is that you’ll walk in love,

with peace your footprints in the sand,

feel freedoms’ kiss upon your cheek

and know joy as your greatest friend.

Lilly ~ Australia

 

NO HAY FINAL EN EL MUNDO,SI LAS PERSONAS TIENEN UN CORAZON LLENO DE AMOR,

NO HAY TAL DESTRUCCION SI EL MUNDO SE RINDE ANTE EL AMOR,
NO HAY OSCURIDAD SI EL AMOR DE LA NAVIDAD SIGUE EN SUS CORAZONES
NO HAY PERSONA QUE NO PUEDA DERRIBAR LA MURALLA SI TIENE FE.

(There is no ending of the world if people have a heart full of love

There is no destruction if the people of the world surrender to love

There is no darkness if the love of Christmas is maintained in their hearts

There is nobody that cannot break down barriers if that person has faith.)

Lu Abimael ~ Guatemala

 

The crowd is cold and starving tonight,

So the dancer breathes and their embers are stirred;

And when she leaps they’re filled with light,

And they share the flight of the firebird.

And as the crowd continues to grow

The dancer spins and the world is stirred;

And when she leaps her rubies glow,

And we share the dawn of the firebird.

Makosica ~ USA

 

Aunque los vientos de la Vida sacudan fundaciones de la piedra,
Deseo para usted: la generosidad, seguridad, conocimiento;
por todos hacemos Sabios en busca de una estrella para seguir, después de todo.
Puede usted refugiarse en la alegría de tener, saber simplemente; lo suficiente.

 

(Even as Life’s winds shake foundations of stone,
I wish for you: the generosity, security, knowledge;
for all become Wise Men searching a star to follow, after all.
May you shelter in joy of simply having, knowing; enough.)
Marie Anzalone/ Raquelita ~ Guatemala/USA

I wish for our world...
the warming comfort of a quilt
sewn from scraps of joy and laughter,
Cups of cocoa, shortbread cookies
served with Honey, Hope and Peace
Mary ~ USA

 

let us bring forth harmony, together

as we gather for such a joyous occasion

so all our voices will ring

with a love the world can sing

Mauricio Montoya ~ USA

 

I wish the world through my eyes see
How beautiful and worthy each and everyone is
without ever needing to hear the words
but kind souls saying them regardless

Mia ~ South Africa 

 

One giver of heart inclination,
Each part still beating all the world;
In a brilliant shine and Paradise quest,
The desire of early world.
Onyia-ota, Kingsley chuks ~ Nigeria

 

I am the child in you I am

And I refeel just how it was

On Christmas eve tucked up in bed

A-peeping out for man in red

Orlando Furioso ~ UK

 

I dream of a simple wish that is not selfish

That someday technology and nature blend well

Balance is in the right direction, together standing still

Harmony prospers in the heights of justice

Pax ~ Philippines

 

When scattered is the snowfall
And blushed with cold is the dark
I still hope for peace for all
A flame to endure the night
PoppySilver ~ England

 

Love happiness and joy

Binds us beneath the sky

snow sand canyon meadows

stand on the horizon with nimble feet

to welcome us for the festival of joy

Christmas! Happy christmas! Merry Christmas.

Rajesh H. ~ India

 

My wish I lift in prayer…

May all who think

they are forgotten

let comfort come to

warm their souls..

May peace prevail

through all countries

and kindness with wisdom dominate hate

Renee J. Martin ~ USA

 

I wish the human race possess

the Christmas spirit all year long

so that kindness and compassion

are not just a yearly fad.

Rock And Roll Cowboy ~ USA

 

I wish for a peace and a joy filled land,
Where only laughter fills and replaces tears,
With disappearing boundaries, world as one
It’s WE, for no more you or no more I.
Shalini (Poet’s World) ~ India

 

Across the world, the human race
shares heart-thoughts by the hearth
the only wish for Christmas is
Universal Peace on Earth...

Sharonlee ~ Australia

 

Cry not for lack of food and drink

Arms to caress and heal one’s pain

Souls, minds uniting to end wars

Assurance of peace, joy and LOVE!

Sheila Kline ~ USA

 

Oh, white snow, that covers all,
make the Pure spirit of World to glow!
Make all angles hug our innocence,
make all white fairies protect is from war!
Make all Earth shine in a new days rainbaw!

SnowANGEl ~ Egypt

 

In those who find life's few comforts

would you join me in life’s amends
For as long as we walk this earth

may we be worthy of our friends

Tate Morgan ~ USA

 

Yeah, tomorrow, headaches, pain
But drink today
Season to be merry
Lets be ill for good reason!
Tomás " Carthaigh ~ Ireland

 

In frosted glass I stare serene at city scenes on plastic snow

And listen to a song so sweet, a tune of peace to all the world

The haunting pace of voices past begins to steal my lilting mind

As alabaster rivers tremble in the quiet, frozen facade of time…

Craig Froman ~ USA (from our 1st Global Collab "2008)
