A Christmas Poem, by James D. Maxon


Patiently I await
For this joyous day to come.
Where we can come together
And bow before the Son.

 The bright white fluffy snow
Patters to the ground.
The coolness in the air
With peacefulness all around.

Before me the Christmas tree
With presents underneath.
Beside me, my beautiful wife
With a smile between her cheeks.

My family sitting near
Talking and laughing together.
The room fills with cheer
And hearts as soft as feathers.

 The Bible opens wide
And we read the Christmas story.
We hear of a child
Who came to show His glory.

 They say a king made a decree
To take away His life.
Little did they know this babe
Was the king of light.

 He had all the power to destroy
But instead He came to heal.
And when He died He left
Upon our hearts His seal.

 With the book softly closed
We said a little prayer.
Thanking God
For always being there.

 We passed around the gifts
Opening them one by one.
But we never forgot the gift
Of God’s one and only Son.

Merry Christmas
And blessings to all.

A Far Off Place – poem, by James D. Maxon


A quiet place
A lonely place, where
Scattered dreams start to pace.
Not by air, nor by car
A winding road
It seems so far…

A far off place

I turned left or was it right?
A twisting path into the night.
I stumbled here and I stumbled there
I cannot find it anywhere…

A far off place

A dim light shown
The road not willing.
An easy way out
Seemed fulfilling…

A far off place

Greed and envy
Lust and hate.
The path long gone
Is it too late?…

A far off place

A stream of blood
A trail to follow.
One who’s righteous
Fills with sorrow…

A far off place

My knees give way
I answer the door.
Son of man enters
I fear no more…

A place called home
