Past Christmas

plasticine clay
and peppermint spice
shadows and boxes and everything nice.
satin red ribbons
dark green fur trees
light powder snow and a cold winter breeze.
old waxy candles
and chalky cakes
twine and flowers and plastic snakes.
bright coloured paper
red and green hats
old knitted stockings and a christmas cat.
yellowed cards
and candy canes
dance in a memory of christmas that came.
