The Christmas Spectacles: Merry Christmas!

The Christmas Spectacles: Merry Christmas! 

With Christmas Eve approaching, it's that time of the year once again. The time of year I publish my annual {Third Annual} Christmas poem, The Christmas Spectacles. A poem about believing & never losing sight of what inspires you, even in the dimmest of times. 

Writing & sharing this is a little tradition of mine I started & I'd like to think, I'd extend this each & every year with a new set of photos to document the time of year. These photos were taken inside an adorable little diner, Katie's Corner, 103 S Main St. Columbiana Ohio, located inside the Olde Cluttered Corner Antique Store.

I want to wish you a very merry holiday. Lots of love & happiness--Katelyn, xo.

The Christmas Spectacles
By: Katelyn Chef 

One Christmas Eve
There was a girl who no longer believed

The light that once shined bright
Fizzled out in her plain sight.

Warm memories faded
Her creative spirit turned jaded.

Walking out to sit under the evening sky
She looked above to ponder the reason why.

Something moved to her right
Squinting, she couldn't make the figure out with all her eyes' might.

Finally, as he drew near,
His image became more clear.

"For it's Christmas Eve," said the man
"& It's an important time for those who give not wanting to receive."

He was clothed in burgundy silk
With a beard as white as milk.

"It's important to carry the creative light,
"For I know you used to write.
Christmas is a time for retrieving 
A bit of has been lost."

He handed the girl a tiny box
It was wrapped in golden cornstalks. 

Gently, untying the delicate string
She finally saw something.

In the box, rested a pair of glasses
Wonderful to the masses.

They were lovely & yellow
Suddenly she felt inspired & mellow.

Slipping the spectacles on
Her imagination lit up like the break of dawn.

He had given her back her lost light
The spectacular spectacles were her new creative sight.

Merry Christmas
