Thank You For Being A Wonderful Friend.

Remember Zuzu?

December Whys 
( A poem by Eve Gaal )

Sunshine paints December flowers,
in Hollywood tones of lilac and lavender.
Tumbleweeds blow across the state.
Fires sparkle and burn,
spread by wind that churns.
Makes me want to fly above the smoke,
douse it with my tears.

I hear bells and ask why?

Emergency vehicles,
courtyard chimes gently ding.
Mission bells ring,
as if a flurry of angels are receiving wings.

Families huddle together in shelters.
They will relate to a baby in a manger.
A cold desert night with mules and sheep
instead of fancy jewels or a rugged Jeep.
They might look at the stars and wonder why
they were chosen to tell the tale,
thankful they didn’t die.

Why do some flowers poke through asphalt,
despite incredible odds?
Why do the myopic insist on driving?
why is the runt often a favorite?
Why is California so beautiful and painful at the same time?

Eve Gaal
Merry Christmas to all my friends and followers from Intangible Hearts.


  1. Merry Christmas, Eve!
    Sadly there is both miracle and tragedy in our world.

  2. Very fitting for the current situation. California needs wet weather for awhile.

  3. Very touching poem. I feel terrible for the people for all the people affected by the fires. Praying for rain for California.
