Ruby Red Dreams

Navigating this Season of Joy

can be terrifying for those with

a Winter’s heart

Fraught with burdens of a crooked journey

she hears paper angels scream

as they melt in the tinsel rain

Carefully unwrapping an old box

laden with the dust of too many years

she gingerly pulls out its contents and sighs

Ruby red slippers glisten as the blissful fire mocks

Holding them to her heavy chest, she whispers

I just want to go home
