Poem: "Stamped In or Out?"

What's stamped in your heart

this holiday season? A worthy question

when Christians are slaughtered for admitting

they are while others proudly stamp their bodies

advertising who and what they love most


still others thinking twice about saying

"Merry Christmas" out loud

Mother's hand-me-down stamp collection

melded into this year's handmade cards,

addressed, stamped and mailed, makes me

think thrice about what's stamped on mine —

You and yours, how one uses their time,

what we give to others more precious than wine.
