nature slows right down
plants will start their Autumn rest
as Summer wanes.

green then disappears
chlorophyll leaches away
gold and red glow bright.

squirrels gather food
as frost nips at tiny feet
building Winter stocks.

now the leaves can fall
Autumn sees their dive for earth
skeletons have stayed.

canopy all gone
only branches now remain
to rustle no more.

admen
in
panic-
need
to
make
great
Christmas
sell
scratch
collective
heads.

~~~~

what
will
sell
Christmas-
something
important
needed
how
about
Jesus.

~~~~

I know – star in east
kings
sheep
homeless
couple
a miracle
birth.

~~~~

I
think
that
will
work-
who
could
resist
such
magic
that’s
a
wrap
fellas.

~~~~

admen
in
panic-
we
still
have
Easter
to
do
something
with
those
buns.

~~~~

adman
meets
his
God-
sees
then
the
real
selling
point
Jesus
is
just
love.
