dwarf




it's been a few years
since we pulled the old tree out.
we bought it back in the old apartment,
with it's sprawling 600 square feet
the best home we had to offer
our tree was the windowsill.
and so i knew it was small,
but i had forgotten how small.
certainly he looks like a dwarf there in the corner
next to the fireplace.
but at least everyone could reach
for the decorating process.
this years ornaments
a mix of years' gone by,
as well as a few new numbers,
both crafted,
from my favorite little boutique
in my favorite little town
azay le rideau.


and perhaps next year
we'll go big.
but i think santa will still find
our little tree
whose lights never go out.
