It's That Time of Year


Dave Chukwuji

It's that time of year
when leaves turn gold?
and fall from the trees matting the ground
as we fall in love all over again
It's that time of year
when the nippy harmattan wind blows
lifting our souls with the hazy dust
in harmony with our gifts dazed hearts
It's that time of year
when all places we go to
are like a maze-puzzle
we must decode with a child's innocence
and crane our necks
for a glimpse of Santa Claus
Lord it's that time of year
when the magic in the streets
melt our hearts like ice left in the sun
It's that time of year when I love you more
its Christmas again
