I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"Covid-19 Against Christmas Magic" is a poem about her looking at a snowglobe.
She hears the elves at Santa Land grumbling behind masks.
Mrs.Claus wants Santa to postpone Christmas until the virus is over but Saint Nick says he must sprinkle Christmas magic across the globe to remind them of baby Jesus.

Covid-19 Against Christmas Magic
She shakes her North Pole snow globe,
hearsing Santa's sleigh bells
in the distance,
listening to the elves grumble
with words muffled behind a mask.
Their tiny fingers diligently sewing
the perfect N95 masks,
to snuggly fit the jolly man and his reindeer,
before the big night
when he journeys across the globe.
Mrs. Claus nags Saint Nick,
begging him to stay home this year
or postpone Christmas
until after the vaccine works.
He gently kisses her forehead
shaking his rosey cheeks,
chuckling with words of wisdom
from the heavens above.
The world needs Christmas magic
sprinkled on all corners of the globe,
to unite people
reminding them of baby Jesus
before Christmas morning.
When people from all walks of life come together
remembering God’s greatest gift,
feeling his presence inside their hearts
the coronavirus will no longer rule their lives,
for there is hope and peace
in the comfort of God’s arms.
