First Sunday of Advent 2011
The First Sunday of Advent or the weekend of:
The first Christmas decoration to think
will it be just an intant buy of holly wreaths
red or green candles
violets and silver
will it be a plastic Christmas tree
the one forgotten in the cellar
Made in China
Christmas cards (who are the loyal friends who
still think of sending classical paper greetings?)
I opted for my traditional mix of edibles,
fruits and nuts mixed with found purple stuffs
in my search for the ceramic angels neatly
protected in a box ready for display
for cozy winter nights;
The first visit to the traditional Weihnachtsmarkt
The first weekend of stress preparing pasalubongs
of chocolates for someone visiting the "Maderland"
The first weekend of Advent
of the season of love and giving.
