Reaching for Stars

Lacking snow
and yet....
dreaming of a  white Christmas,
hoarfrost must suffice.

And really,
it is every bit as magical.
crystalline forms
dusting everything in sight
this December morning.

It is as if
during the night,
all of the stars fell
from out of  the sky
wanting to be visible
during daylight.

as if the Universe thought:

Those people
need more time
for wishing upon stars
and thinking

It's December:
make a wish
write a letter to Santa
say a prayer
and then,
make it come true.
