A Christmas poem

Christmas in Bali

Trees adorned with tinsel
glitter under tropical sun
shop staff wear red Santa hats
to join in holidaymaker’s fun

Christmas tree in Bali

My Christmas tree in Bali

Jingle bells are playing
from the ice cream seller’s cart
and colourful Christmas baubles sit
amid fine works of traditional art

Fake snow lines the window frame
slightly yellowed by the hot sun rays
tourists top up their golden tans
on these holy Christmas days

So a Merry Christmas to you all
on this Hindu paradise isle
where unity in diversity reigns
and peace flows from every smile

Let’s thank the Balinese and their gods
for their culture that we love the most
so please raise your glass and drink a toast
to our gracious Indonesian hosts

Thank you Bali
