Packing up Christmas

IMG_1962 3 (5)

After weeks of preparation, sadly

another Christmas has come and gone.

Anticipation of festive joy was riding high

as a propensity for Christmas magic

kept my hopes and dreams alive.

Now the holidays are over

and the magic has disappeared

packed away in plastic boxes

among shiny baubles and strings of lights.

Hope has become just hope again

and dreams have become just dreams

… until next year

when the magic is unpacked.
