Winter Holiday Writing Prompt Challenge: Christmas Eve/Cailey Johanna

And light breathes forth into darkness.

The world groans, thick

like a door untouched, it is tight

with anticipation. We don’t know

what we are waiting for. We just are,

unaware of the transformation

which approaches, the new beginning

it carries on its shoulders.
