The Holly

 

The Holly:
Sharp edges poke me as
I walk through the woods.
Startled, I reached down and noticed the holly.


The holidays surprise me
As I struggle through the fall.
Startled, I feel the sharpness of
The first holiday with you.


I touch the leaf and feel the water fall off.
The thought of you in a better place is sweet.
Sweet as the berry that will grow on this holly.
