December Afternoon

      surrounded by
december darkness,
   festive lights look
   amazingly bright.

   we understand
axial declination
   but deep inside,
dark is unnerving,

      maybe just
a little bit...

we are so brave!
      children 
   at midnight, 

   bravely whistling 
past the graveyard
of early december
      darkness.

      we are not 
night creatures.

   beautiful lights in
december darkness
give us great cheer
      and we wonder.
