I would like to decorate you
like a Christmas Tree.

A solid grip
at the base
to anchor you.

Glassy ornaments
to bring out your color.

Streams of tinsel
binding
and floating in mere
thought of a breeze.

Here and there,
a bauble from the past,
ensuring the link from
then to now.

The simplest of lights,
glowing on the outside,
and casting revealing shadows
on your form
.

Candy canes and strings of popcorn;
sticky sweet, buttery, salty.

The simple blanket,
wrapped around
to catch what falls.

And who could forget
the crowning touch of a halo?

Yes, sometimes I would like to decorate you
as gaudy as a tree can be.

Mostly,
I would like
to see you
in nothing at all.

The perfect shape
wants for nothing,
but to be seen.
