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.
