My Christmas Carol (#teacher5adaywrite)

Ideal Present

The always unattainable.
The ever aspirational,
Yet singularly rational.
The only way sustainable.

The Christmas wish original.
The season's own spiritual.
Past, present, future, urging us to our renewal.
Tenses stirring senses of recurrences eternal.

The past an absence immemorial.
The present feeling fleeting and ephemeral.
The future holding promise that the story has a moral.
To sleep. To dream. To grasp at the ethereal.

O innocence so elemental,
To wish for this, so immaterial,
To pray the prayers of yester yule,
To deny a world ungentle.
