IS THIS MERE FANTASY


It’s the night before Christmas , still I am annoyed
Visions of North Pole, now crumpled and foiled
While youngsters prepare for deer bells to ring
Above moon-filled sky, voices carolling.

Fireplace adorned with trinkets on Yule rug
Awaiting Ole Claus to sneak by... humbug!
Wishes for red bike never came last year
My card he ignored, did it disappear?

Now,  I wonder if you really exist
My eyes smoulder as I’m not on the list;
Even Mama dances by the flames so proud
Repeating your name (Vixen’s too), aloud.

“Dear Santa, I doubt the speed of your ride
How can you bring presents in hours, worldwide?
Kringle to St. Nick, a fantasy’s weave.”
Then note falls, “like love, you have to believe!”

In a wink, my bike turns up to my delight,
Jingles fade off, “Merry Christmas; good night!”


...............

Santa Claus of Debbie Guzzi

    Santa brings smiles and love, and we must believe in the power of them. Awesome poem!

    Yes, we all must still believe in Santa Clause! That way even in our older age we might actually get surprised by a Santa gift when Santa listens to what we really want, from our desires to receive! Santa can be a very romantic individual, I've seen my wife receive a gorgeous ring or necklace from Santa! Awesome! What an inspiring poem, Great Work!!

    I was ten when I found out who he really was. Santa lives in me and will outlive us all because hope is forever. A fine gift for the season, Nette; your vision and poetry are incomparable!

    " Like love, you have to believe." That says in all for all cynics.You turned this around and made me see the real meaning of giving through your childlike eyes. Boy, oh boy!

    Nette, your premise about this man fascinates. I have always believed in his presence , in what he truly stands for--- a beacon of love thrugh the ages. Uniquely scribed. I must thank you for this, and for the joy of having me in your last challenge.
