CLOSE TO HER HEART

CLOSE TO HER HEART


when father passed on
one lady was all broken up
in his pocket a necklace
at the home mother wears the missile
close to her heart

SAD

Grey sky confusion -
a bruised brooding December.
Sharp as spruce and myrrh
tears fall, strike bauble light, salve
this cold Christmas contusion.

The Sad Past

Little did I know
Our mistletoe kiss that night
By the Christmas tree
Would be the last kiss we shared
And then you left forever


*My first attempt at an assonant poem. 
Those familiar with assonance please comment and let me know how I did.*

December Magic

multi-colored lights are back inside their boxes... magic of Christmas wrapped snuggly in white tissue is ready for a long sleep

A Christmas Wish

A fine fix we’re in A real grumpy old grandpa Children complaining A house full of pure chaos And none happy at this time What will we do now This year has come to an end So very quickly No one’s pleasantly moping Everyone’s in displeasure Just one Christmas wish For a household of happiness Joy for everyone A wish of delightful laughs Cozy warmth to each other Just this simple wish Is all I ask for this year Not a possible task For myself to do alone I need Santa’s help for sure After the blessing I will offer what you will A holiday toast Thank you for your services For granting my Christmas wish

CHRISTMAS EVE

CHRISTMAS EVE

riding the wind
a thousand christmas bells
swirl city corners
custom country steeples
ring round my splintery old pew


in a ponderous quiet
on this hallowed eve
i’m forgetting the dreary
remembering those hundred candles
mother singing oh holy night


christmas eve
no snow
torrents of rain
santa comes round
in a pontoon plane

Hung My Christmas Sock

Hung my Christmas sock
Darned neatly for the mantel
So Santa could leave
Nuts, fruit maybe peppermint 
Winter often harshly cold

Never wanted much
Just a big red tricycle
To ride my sister
Around on the long front porch
Red tricycle was missing

Dad quickly vanished
Had owner to open store 
On Christmas morning
Santa left it on front porch
Could not stuff into stocking

'Sad Christmas Snowflake's'

*** The church brightly lit, I stand in the falling snow, recalling Christmas . . . As the snow kisses my hair, weeping, I must turn away. ___________________________ December 3, 2013 Tanka For the contest, Not So Happy Holidays, Andrea Dietrich 4th Place

Christmas in July Alone

A summer abroad
Homesick for my family
Silent nights abound
Building a snowman from sand  
My loneliness melts away...

Perfect Christmas



A perfect Christmas
colored stockings by the fire
cookies on a plate
a visit from old Saint Nick
family and friends gather here...

the largest package under the tree

CHRISTMAS TANKA AND SEDOKA

CHRISTMAS TANKA AND SEDOKA

toy shop
‘jolly and son’
train in the window
wetting a circle
this little nose

sedoka

money pot men
on every street corner
constant jingling
on winter air
stocking caps no faces
but red noses

mid november
in the mall
thanksgiving coming
man in red hurries past
white whiskers on the floor

just november
and the mall full of trees
outrageous prices
i’ll wait for a sale
like on this thanksgiving turkey

sedoka

the mystique
the carols
sucking on a candy cane
i’m like a kid again
funny thought
my walking stick with stripes

perfectly formed
best tree ever
just a buck
“sam!   neighbor is livid
sonny chopped down
his blue spruce”

woe is me
so lonely
until I see
a box of kittens
left at my front door
on christmas eve

Tragic Holidays


  Her soul mate is gone.
     Cancer took him from her world.
        Her sad eyes tell all.   
          Christmas will not be the same.
            His sweet touch far from her now.

Wishes for Magic

Wishes for magic
stored in an innocent mind.
Stockings on mantles,
sharing Christmas joy and mirth,
never happened in our home.

Christmas Eve

The new sign is up.
Although our name is spelled wrong,
Santa Clause will still
find us because he knows the
gingermen will be waiting.

Christmas-dinner for one

one tiny table 
a crowded cheap restaurant
one lonely figure
sipped softly in the middle 
of loud cozy dining crowds

My Dearest

I held her cold hand
She silently slipped away 
I sank into tears
Her gift is on the table 
I wrapped it myself, today.

CHRISTMAS COMES WITH LOVE



(Tanka Suit) I bought this for you And I want you know today How much I love you It's given with all my heart Celebrate Jesus we do. Christmas can be fun Make best of the time we got After all is done We can sing and dance a lot Excitement in all just shown. Some snow starts to fall Christmas trees glistens with lights By now gone is fall Stars shine shimmering the nights Folks shop crowding all the malls. Children laugh playing Outside while snowman building Hang ornaments on tree Lots of smiles Jesus is the key Children happy when toys see.

Christmas Stockings

Downstairs he had gone
He looked left then he spied right
Joyously, he screamed
His stocking, was full of toys
A big wide smile crossed his face

BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW

santa has a companion
he’s wooly and fat
nestled by the jolly elf
warming the world – santa’s cat

A Sad Christmas Eve


     
Rain for many days Rivers of water swept through On that Christmas Eve We struggled to higher ground Leaving our home and the cat.....
A true story, we lost everything (material) on that evening.

A Spiritual Christmas Gifts to You

              A jolly old man
  Who makes your wishes come true
            A joy of Christmas
    Brings such special gifts to you
      She waits for him patiently

          Underneath the tree
  Sprinkled with faith and hope too
               My love is a gift
     Two are kindness and giving
       Three is a promise to you

           I give you my heart
        Filled with a decoration
             Now and forever
         A sweet communication
         Near to me or far apart

A Sandy Hook Christmas

A town in mourning
No joy in this season of
Wonder, love, and light
   The children on the mantel
   Won't be here again this year.

A-NOT-SO-JOLLY CHRISTMAS

Doesn't Christmastime mean
presents, carols and cheers?
But for one it won't
be a jolly Holiday
diagnosed with breast cancer.
